Weather Conditions

MCG will have a fine balance between the bat and ball with the bowlers enjoying their time with the new ball. Batters can have a crack if they can settle down o this track. Spinners might have a small role on this track. The weather will be bright and sunny for the first 2 days with overcast conditions expected on next 2 days.

Venue Details

MCG has been a good batting wicket in the first 2 innings with average scores over 300+ runs so far. We expect the teams to score between 350-400 runs in this match and any score above 250 will be tough to chase in the fourth innings.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams will opt to bat first on this pitch as the ball will come onto the bat nicely once they survive the new ball. Batting might become hard on the fourth day of the match.

Tasmania baters made a brilliant comeback after early collapse and dominated the most part of the last game. Their bowlers have taken 20 opposition wickets only once so far and will need to up their game. Victoria batters will consider last game as an aberration as they have bee piling up runs in this season. Their bowlers are yet to take 20 wickets in a game so far. There have been 5 drawn results between these two teams so far and with rain threat looming for last 2 days we can expect a draw in this match too.

We expect Tasmania to win if rain stays away else Draw will be result.
