The pitch, a drop-in, will be largely an unknown for its first international. It may be expecting too much for it to be a Perth flyer. The forecast is for a hot day and this is the only day-game of the series so there won’t be much relief from the heat. Sam Billings, David Willey, Dawid Malan and Jake Ball are England’s squad players yet to get a game in this series and they will struggle to find a spot in Perth unless the view is taken that it’s worth some rotation. The first three of that quartet are also in the T20 squad. For Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Joe Root this is their last outing of the tour – they have been rested from the T20 tri-series.
Steven Smith has hinted that Glenn Maxwell, who was snubbed in the original squad, could find a place in the side having come in for the injured Aaron Finch. Cameron White would be the man under pressure given a lean run since his surprise recall. Mitchell Starc rested in Adelaide, and home-town boy Jhye Richardson is the other pace options.
