Australia made light work of Pakistan in the first Test at the Gabba. Will they dominate again in the 2nd test at Adelaide?

After an emphatic victory in Brisbane, things may be different as the teams head to the Adelaide Oval for a day/night match with the pink ball. The pitch at Adelaide is renowned for having something on offer for batsman and bowler.

Australia vs Pakistan 2nd Test preview

Australian coach Justin Langer has confirmed the side will be unchanged in Adelaide. This differs from the approach used in the Ashes and is particularly interesting given the tougher New Zealand series approaching.

Pakistan coach Misbah Ul-Haq still has a few selection decisions to make at the time of writing. He was criticised for leaving out seamer Mohammed Abbas at the Gabba. Expect Abbas in the side no matter what for one of Imran Khan or Naseem Shah.

Teenager Naseem was limited to 20 overs in the first Test and Pakistan are wary of the 16-year-old's workload. He could be held out for another teen quick in Musa Khan.

First drop Haris Sohail could be axed too. His continued failures with the bat may see Imam-ul-Haq or Abid Ali called upon to open. Pakistan captain Azhar Ali would then slide down to his preferred number three spot.

Who will win the Australia vs Pakistan second Test?

Pakistan face a huge challenge again. Australia asserted their dominance first up and the quicks will only be more dangerous with the pink Kookaburra zipping around. Pakistan's bowlers will be hoping to get the ball doing a bit more, as they did in both their warm-up matches.

How to watch Australia vs Pakistan Test cricket series

Finder already has both an existing how to live stream cricket guide and a how to watch Australia vs Pakistan Test matches guide. So instead here we'll talk about your free-to-air option and the best streaming choice.

Obviously for those satisfied with free-to-air, Channel 7 is the quick solution. However, that doesn't mean you should just settle for that. Test matches are five days long and the day/night format means there'll be crossover with other sports.

Watch Australia vs Pakistan on free-to-air

Channel 7 had its first summer of cricket in 2018. The coverage drew mixed reviews, with less notable commentators.

Viewers can tune into Channel 7 to watch Australia vs Pakistan in the day/night Test. Channel 7 has the rights to broadcast all home Australian Test matches, but is not able to have the cricket on the 7Plus app or on demand as it doesn't have the digital rights.

Live stream Australia vs Pakistan via Kayo Sports

Watch Australia vs Pakistan on Foxtel iQ

Foxtel iQ is the only service in Australia that broadcasts sport in 4K UHD. The only problem is that a premium service doesn't come cheap. Current customers simply need to add the Sports HD pack for $25/month to begin watching Australia vs Pakistan.

If you're a new customer than there's a bigger set-up cost. Foxtel's base pack is a mandatory inclusion, which is priced at $49/month. Then there's typically an installation cost too, though you may get lucky and land a Foxtel iQ deal.

Once you combine the two packages you're staring at a bill of $74/month. You will also get access to the loyalty program Foxtel First and be able to watch away from home with Foxtel GO.
