Venue Details and Pitch Report
16 Sep, 05:30 PM IST
Old Trafford, Manchester, Manchester
Richard Kettleborough (England, TV), Richard Illingworth (England), Alex Wharf (England)
The pitch at Old Trafford is best suited to fast bowlers. The new ball has troubled the batsmen of both teams. However, it is relatively simpler to score runs in the second phase of the innings.
There are minimal chances of rain in Manchester on Wednesday. The temperature will hover around 19 degrees Celsius, while the wind speed is expected to be 15 KMPH.
With the scoreline all-square both the teams have the opportunity to clinch the series. Australia will be mighty disappointed if it loses this match as it had the opportunity to put the series in the bag in the last match. However, that being said, expect the two teams to slog it out till the last ball of the match. This one is going to be one humdinger of a match.
