The Australian team has announced their playing eleven for the day-night Test match to be played in Perth between Australia and New Zealand from Thursday. Playing XI includes the same players who played against Pakistan in the Test series. This will be the third consecutive match in which the Australian team will play with the same playing eleven. A three-match Test series will be played between Australia and New Zealand, with the first match being Day-Night.
Talking about this Test series, Australia's Test captain Tim Paine said, "Our team is playing very good cricket at the moment. I am very happy with the performance of the team at the moment. It is our endeavor to become a team that continuously tries to perform well. We did well against Pakistan in the last two Tests and once again we are going to play against New Zealand with the same playing XI." However, he also said that perhaps changes can be made in the team for the second and third Test matches.
Australia is going to play their seventh day-night Test match against New Zealand. The way the Australian team is performing right now, New Zealand will get a tough competition. However, the Kangaroo team's opener David Warner is in great form right now.
