It has been a long while since the last international Test was played at Melbourne Cricket Ground. The pitch is expected to be flat which might be difficult to bat on initially but after staying at the crease for a while and getting used to it the batsmen would feel more comfortable. Seamers can expect decent movement off the deck. Spinners will also have a fair amount of say as the pitch wears off after the first few sessions. Batting first would be the preferred choice here and hence the toss will play a crucial role.
