Expect a bit of everything from the Adelaide Oval wicket

6:17 am on 5 December 2013

The Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke says a range of bowling will come into play for the second Ashes Test starting today on a redeveloped Adelaide Oval.

Rain has been forecast for the first morning, but its expected to be fine for the rest of the Test.

Adelaide Oval's cricket pitch has traditionally been regarded as a batsman's strip which can suit spin bowling as a Test progresses.

But Clarke expects swing bowling will also feature....


IN:......You'll see....

OUT:...Test match.

DUR:...17 SECS

For the first time the Adelaide Oval is using a drop-in pitch.

Australia won the first Test.
