There are some doubts about Australia’s batting order. In the second practice match, Travis Head opened the innings with D’Arcy Short while in the first practice match Aaron Finch did the same job. If we go the statements of players and coach, Travis Head might open the innings and Aaron Finch will be given the role of stabilizing the middle order.
