“It has been a tough couple of weeks. But we are looking good, wickets have come good now. The forecast is improving.

We are happy with the grass cover, waiting for good weather,” Curator Adam Lewis said in a virtual press conference on Tuesday.

“I think we will have a bit of pace in it. We always start off with a little bit of pace in it. It naturally then turns into the traditional SCG wicket”, curator Lewis said.
