Australia firm for Test on improved Hobart weather forecast

Sat, Nov 12, 9:25am by Bren O'Brien

A slightly improved weather forecast for Hobart has seen Australia firm into $3.90 to win the second Test, which starts on Saturday at Blundstone Arena.

The Test is still expected to be significantly affected by rain and the draw is still firm favourite with Sportsbet at $1.69.

But play is expected to get away on time before the rain sets in on Saturday afternoon. A look at the Hobart weather radar 90 mins before play sees some showers in the urroundign area, but no indication yet of the downpours which have been predicted.

However, that will change on Sunday, with over 30mm of rain predicted to fall on the Tasmanian capital, with ny play considered unlikely.

The rain will clear by Monday, the third day of the Test, while the final two days are expected to be clear.

South Africa may have won the first Tet by 177 runs, but they are $4.75 outsiders to win this match and secure their third consecutive Test series victory on Australian soil.

Australia confirmed on Friday that Adam Voges, who scored a double century on this ground last year, had passed a test on his injured hamstring and would take his place in the 11.

The home side has already made two changes from the Perth Test, with Joe Burns expected to replace Shaun Marsh at the top of the order and Peter Siddle’s place in the XI taken by debutant Joe Mennie.

Callum Ferguson may also come in for Mitch Marsh, who is under pressure to hold his spot.

South Africa are set to bring both Morne Morkel and Kyle Abbott into the side at the expense of the injured Dale Steyn and spinner Keshav Maharaj.
