Australian Cricket Team side backed David Warner in the top order as they gave him a chance to have a good farewell, but the team is looking more into the new players in the test squad. Cameron Green is one of them who wants to cement his place in the test team. Nathan Lyon will be returning to the squad after a long-time injury that he had before the World Cup.

Both teams are going to enjoy the surface as Pakistan also depends on their pace bowling unit, just like Australia, which is known for its lethal pace bowling unit. However, on the 4th and 5th day, the pitch will help the spinners too, as Nathan Lyon is the most wicket-taker, with 22 and a strike rate of 18.45.
