Melbournians are preparing for one of the biggest days of the Australian sporting calendar, with the Boxing Day Test set to get underway at the MCG later this morning.
Spectators will have something to look forward to in Victorian paceman Scott Boland making his Test debut for Australia – at 32 years of age.
Mr Boland is only the second male Indigenous Test player in Australian cricket history after Jason Gillespie.
All eyes will also be on Marcus Harris after the embattled Aussie opener looks to find some form in front of his home crowd after struggling to score runs in the first two Tests.
England have made four changes to their side – including the omission of fast bowler Stuart Broad.
