It is anticipated that on the day of this game, the weather in Launceston will bring intermittent showers with a temperature of 16 degrees Celsius.
Despite being some support on offer for the bowlers, the pitch at the Aurora Stadium is a nice one to bat on. Although the pitch will slow down as the match progresses the ball should skid on nicely under the lights.
Run-scoring against the new ball is comparatively more superficial, with the middle overs being critical to the fortunes of either side. On winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first with 160-170 being a good total at this venue.
