Pitch and Weather Report
The weather will chilly and partly cloudy at 14 degrees Celsius. The humidity level would be 44%. There will be no rain and the match will be completed without any interruption.
The start of the season means that the pitch in Hobart will be fresh and hard. While the batsmen will enjoy the ball coming on to the bat and then hitting through the line, fast bowlers will get some purchase off the wicket early on. The significance of the dew factor is not known yet, so the captain winning the toss should elect to bat first and put around 170 runs on the board.
