WACA puts up Perth’s case to host India.
Next summer, India is going to be playing Test series in Australia. Christina Matthews, who is the chief executive of WACA, said in her statement that there is no reason that Perth misses out to host India. SCG, MCG, and almost certainly Adelaide Oval are all set to host India in the four-Test series. Brisbane and Perth are locked in a two-way battle for the test that is yet to find a venue. The venue which does not get a Test against India has to host a lowly-ranked Afghanistan instead. The dominant record of Australia on the juicy Gabba pitch is in favor of Brisbane. Australia had not lost even a single test in Brisbane since 1988. Players want to play the test against India in Gabba. However, the stadium has attracted poor attendance in recent years.

Brigade look of Kane Williamson to redeem Paine.
New Zealand’s efforts to salvage some pride from their miserable tour of Australia may happen as smoke haze could come into play in the third and final Test in Sydney this week. Bushfires are raging across New South Wales State, and day two of the match on Saturday is going to face a more significant challenge with temperatures forecast showing a rise with expected smoggier conditions. The smoke is one of the biggest concerns for the officials who are relying on the air quality guidelines from the International Cricket Council, State governments, and the Australian Institute of Sports. The inconsistencies on what to be considered unsafe for the players are making the job even more difficult as there is a lack of proper protocols about visibility and air quality. It is going to be an Umpires decision in the end if they find conditions safe for the game.
