Aussies would like to win this match and register their fourth consecutive win in the tournament and get to 8 points. Tom Latham won the toss and elected to bowl first.
“We are going to bowl. Early start, reasonable surface, there may be something early with the new ball because of a day game. Jimmy Neesham is in for Mark Chapman who has a calf niggle. Adapting quickly will be key,” said Tom Latham after winning the toss.
