Venue: Sydney Showground Stadium, Sydney
Pitch Report: The surface at the Sydney Showground Stadum will assist the pacers as it has some assistance for the bowlers at the start of the innings. However, batters might fancy their chances towards the back end. Team winning the toss should opt to bat first and anything above 170 can be considered as a good score.
