Australia vs Pakistan Day-Night Test, Preview: Match timings, team combinations and where to watch

Posted On / /

Australia is set to host Pakistan in a Day-Night Test match at the Adelaide Oval, starting Friday.

The hosts won the first Test at the Gabba by an innings and five runs.

Pakistan skipper Azhar Ali on Thursday confirmed that paceman Mohammad Abbas will return to the playing XI to add consistency to their bowling attack under lights.

The tourists have serious work to do against an in-form Australian side.

Earlier, the Aussie captain Tim Paine named an unchanged team for the second Test.

The pitch is expected to be a bit drier and there will be plenty of help for the pacers.

Team combinations

Australia: David Warner, Joe Burns, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine (c & wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon.

Pakistan: Azhar Ali (c), Shan Masood, Haris Sohail, Asad Shafiq, Babar Azam, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Abbas, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Yasir Shah, Naseem Shah.
