Starc’s day-night Test record is exemplary, (52 wickets at an average of 18.23) though, with future series across formats on the horizon, the left-arm may be given the match off to support his workload.

It’s the first time Blundstone Arena in Hobart has hosted a Test match since 2016, with South Africa winners over the hosts on that occasion.

The final Test of the series begins tomorrow afternoon. It is worth another 12 World Test Championship points in the 2021-2023 cycle.
