Pitch & weather report:
The pitch of Muzaffarabad Cricket Ground is likely to support the pacers with no additional help for the spinners. Quick players will be able to swing during the initial phase.
Being a fine spot to hit, the batsmen should negotiate the swing carefully. The teams, winning the toss, are likely to choose to field first. As 145 stays the average score of the first inning, the team batting later is expected to win more battles.
