The practice match will help India get an idea of the weather conditions. While talking about the series, Pakistani legend Wasim Akram said that it's going to be a tough series for Indian bowlers. “I think the Indian bowlers will have it tough. To start off, there are a couple of drop-in pitches in Adelaide, Melbourne, they are not bouncy tracks anymore. Brisbane will have a little bit of bounce. I think at Perth they are playing in a new stadium, I don’t know what sort of pitch they have over there" Akram told NDTV.
