Pitch Report

The Melbourne surface traditionally stays true with even bounce, allowing for a fair contest between bat and ball, although not always between Australia and opposition. The pitch will be helpful for the bowlers on the first day and swing could be expected. But as time goes on the pitch will become easy for batting. 

The team winning the toss will likely to choose to do batting first.

Preview

Cricket Australia predicts more than 78,000 fans to attend the opening day of the second test between Australia and New Zealand at the massive ground with thousands of Kiwis amongst them. The craze of boxing day test match has been for many days. 

Australians are warmed up for the second test match of the series which will be the boxing day test match. The rivals had to take absorb loss last time in Perth. The batting of New Zealand caved off again in spectacular fashion and that should worry Kane Williamson and the management of the squad. Early on in the match, they missed Ferguson with the ball and never really recovered.

The Aussies were brilliant, and it was impressive, as Paine said, to get 20 wickets in these conditions with just three specialist bowlers. As the caravan heads to Melbourne for the Boxing Day Test. Let’s hope there’s more competition from the New Zealanders.

Fantasy Cricket Team Prediction

Wicket Keepers- From the wicketkeeper section, the best option available is Tim Paine. Since he is the captain of the Australian team and will be likely to absorb pressure for this time and will be looking to score bog runs in the upcoming test match. So he will be the best choice for a wicketkeeper in any fantasy cricket league. BJ Watling has been sensational this year with the Kiwi wicket-keeper scoring a double hundred as well against England.

Batsman-  Steve Smith and Kane Williamson are considered to be among the Fab Four of world cricket. While Smith has not scored much in the first match but he will be likely to come back strong, Williamson comes into this game after the worst match in Perth from his batting point of view even he will be likely to get back stronger. While David Warner‘s sensational triple hundred holds him good stead as well, the likes of Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls are also viable batting picks for this game.

All-Rounders- Colin de Grandhomme is a decent option with the batting all-rounder capable of picking a wicket or two with his nagging accuracy. Another viable all-rounder pick would be Marnus Labuschagne, who is the highest run-scorer in Tests this year. He has shown what he is capable of doing in the first test match. He will be the best choice for captain in your fantasy team.

Bowlers- Although there is a lot of quality on either side, Pat Cummins and Neil Wagner stand out. Wagner, on the other hand, has also been equally brilliant with 29 wickets in just four Tests. Along with both of them, Trent Boult also warranties a place in the side while only one of Josh Hazlewood or Mitchell Starc should also suffice.
