It's gonna be an absolute scorcher in Adelaide tomorrow, with the mercury is set to soar to 39C.
Adelaide Oval will host Australia host India for the start of the first test tomorrow, despite the relentless heat.
Adelaide Oval curator Damian Hough saiid he wasn't sure how the heat will affect the pitch.
"It's hard to tell with the heat, whether that'll have a positive or negative effect," Hough told reporters on Wednesday.
"The hot weather can really bake the pitch and play an important role in pitch preparation. But the flipside of that is if it's not quite right, it might go the other way and flatten out a bit.
"Time will tell but we're comfortable where it is right now."
