Steven Smith says: "We are gonna have a bat. I don't think there will be a great deal of bounce. Think it will take spin as the game goes on, so hoping for a good first innings total. Exciting half-way through (at 1-1),
makes for a good series. Hope we can play well in this one. Lot to still play. Nice to have a bit of rest. The preparation has been good. Last couple of days has been good at training, so boys are good to go. Two changes: Pat Cummins comes in for his first game in a while, and Glenn Maxwell as well."
