Sarfraz says: “A bit of grass, looks like a green pitch, a bit of moisture,”. “Unfortunately we didn’t play the last game, but worked hard with lots of practice.”
Aaron Finch says: he would have bowled first too… “One-off games in different conditions, you expect to come up against the best. It’ll have to be wait-and-see what the wicket does first-up.” Richardson, with his death bowling, gets in ahead of Jason Behrendorff as Zampa sits out, as does Nathan Lyon.
