“It’s not a no-brainer, it’s a bit soft on top, but we haven’t seen much sun down south so it might do a bit this morning.” “it builds confidence,” Morgan says of beating Australia 5-0 last year. “For a long time we never won anything against Australia, but we have had some success recently and I think we have a good side.” “Jofra is good, he had stiffness in his side and we had a precautionary fitness test. We are confident.
“I’m not too disappointed batting,” says Aaron Finch. “I wasn’t too sure about the wicket, but I would have probably bowled first as well. We’ve played consistent cricket throughout without being outstanding. If you go too hard you leave yourself open at the back-end against some world-class death bowlers.” On the likelihood of a rough ride from the crowd, Finch adds: “We aren’t really bothered about how the crowd reacts. Every game is crucial and we can’t take any lightly.” England goes with the same team, Australia makes two changes.
