Chasing will be preferred by both – Both the teams ENG and AUS will be looking to win the toss and choose to field first considering even in the past both the teams have preferred to chase and that MCG pitch is a low scoring pitch and both the teams have some deadly pacers like M.STARC and Sam Curran
According to weather reports, the temperature of Melbourne city of Australia on October 28 (Friday) will be 13° Celcius during the day and fall to 10° Celcius at night. The sky will be cloudy and showers are expected throughout the day.
The chances of rain are about 92% during the day and 75% at night. Since ENG vs AUS match is scheduled to take place at night, rain is highly expected to affect the match. The humidity will be 79% during the day and rise to 84% at night.
The pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground assists the pacers. As the ball moves off the surface, the batters will have to be on their toes while batting here. The spinners will come into play in the later stages of the game due to long boundaries.
The MCG being a bowling pitch and usually a low scoring pitch but both ENG and AUS have the batting talent they need to maintain a good score, keeping these facts and history in mind we can expect a target around 150-170.
AUS are the favourites by the slightest – Even though this might be one of the most difficult matches to pick a favourites, our expert have analysed and came to the conclusion that MCG being a great bowling pitch, AUS have that slight advantage because even though ENG’s bowling lineup is also one of the best ones, its still overshadowed by AUS’s legendary bowling lineup with STARC, STOINIS and more.
ENG – Butler, Mark WOOD, Sam Curran.
IRE – Stoinis and Tim David.
