Welcome to test 3 of the MacRobertson Shield. Australia are the only team unbeaten after two tests and are playing the winless USA in the final round, while on paper, NZ is fighting it out against England for the silver medal. However, teams on paper don't always go to plan and anything can happen. Players are currently completing their warm up. It's another lovely day in Palm Springs and I can't see a cloud in the sky. The weather is expected to get even hotter this week and could reach close to 40 degrees, so it will be a real test for the players.
Chapman/Hakes vs Mulliner/Patel are on the top lawns.
Hogan/Shilling vs Maugham/Hopgood are on the top lawns on the feature lawn for those who want to watch online.
Clarke/Tahurangi vs Death/Burch are on the bottom lawns so there will be less commentary for this match, but I'll try and provide updates.

Jimbo failed 1b, Clarke to 4b and Jimbo missed the lift, so Harps has a chance to equalise
