Weather Conditions

Perth will have a good placid surface where the bowlers might toil hard to get wickets in the day 2 & day 3 especially. We expect both teams to score runs in the range of 350-400 runs. 

Venue Details

Perth is expected to have bright and clear weather with very less chances of rain or weather interruptions expected as per weather forecast. 

Toss: To Bat

Both teams will look to bat first as the pitch gets tough to bat on as the match progresses. Chasing might become tricky in the fourth innings especially. 

Both teams miss a lot of players owing to their national duty currently. Western Australia has a good batting and pace unit that has s lof of experience on their side.They lack quality spinners in the XI. New South Wales lack experience in their batting line up and will need to get used tk playing at this stage. We expect Western Australia to win this match. 

Western Australia will win the match
