Pitch & weather report:
Bowlers, especially pacers are more advantageous here. Both the teams will be looking to add a minimum of spin and more pace to attack each others’ batting line-ups. Batters too have been prosperous.
The temperature is expected to be lower when the game begins and eventually getting colder with the passing hours. The humidity will lay around 80-90% with bright chances of cats and dogs weather interrupting the game. There are chances that the game may be paused in between.
