The surface at the Latrobe Recreation Ground is a balanced one, however, the new ball bowlers are expected to get some initial movement. The batters need to be cautious early on and can score freely once they are well set. Batting is expected to be easier in the second innings and therefore, the captain winning the toss is likely to bowl first.
