It is an early afternoon game and there has been rain around Sydney. Expect there to some moisture on the pitch and some early seam movement in case of cloud cover. If the sun beats down expect the spinners to have their say. Batting wise there will be runs on offer with the new and hard cherry. A score of 155-170 should be the norm, the team batting first could decide to bat first.
