AUS vs PAK 2nd Test Dream11

Australia are going to face Pakistan in the 2nd Test at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday. David Warner, hinting at retirement from the five-day format after the Sydney Test, affirmed his commitment to white-ball cricket.

Pakistan faced a huge defeat at Perth in the 1st Test by 360 runs. It will be another challenge for them in Melbourne as well.

Let’s take a look at our fantasy preview for this game.

MCG, Melbourne Cricket Ground

AUS vs PAK Preview

Both teams are looking to add points to the WTC 2023-25 circle. Pakistan in their second warm-up match played some good cricket though against Australia’s Victoria XI at Junction Oval, Melbourne. 3 fifties came from Saud Shakeel, Salman Ali Agha and Mohammad Rizwan and the match was drawn. This is a quite positive aspect to face Australia in the 2nd match.

MCG Pitch Report

The MCG pitch is known as one of the most competitive in the world. It has a perfect balance between bat and ball. While bowlers may receive some assistance early on because of mostly genuine bounce, as it ages, the batters may freely execute their strokes.
