Boland was taken into the team earlier this week. Boland can get a chance due to the exclusion of two important bowlers. Josh Hazlewood is already out with an injury, which means captain Pat Cummins and Boland are the two new additions to the Australian playing XI.
Cummins was out first

Cummins will now lead the team again. Cummins said on the eve of the match, “Joy and Neser are suffering from a muscle strain after the Adelaide Test and so we decided to include Scotty in the team.” ,
