IND vs SL 2023: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

After a thriller at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the focus will now shift to the MCA Stadium in Pune. On that note, here, we look at the pitch report of Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium and the weather conditions in Pune for IND vs SL 2023.

India had an unconvincing performance in the first game, although they won the match. They did not have a good outing with the bat. If not for Deepak Hooda and Axar Patel’s show in the end, India could have ended with a low score. With the ball, the likes of Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal were in poor form. India might change a few things here.

For Sri Lanka, though, all they need is some confidence to win the game. The bowling unit stepped up and skipper Dasun Shanaka is also in top form. If the other batters also step up, Sri Lanka will surely pose a strong challenge to the Indians. They might also look to make a few changes to the playing XI, especially in the pace department.

The average first-batting score is 153. As seen in the first game, this is definitely not a winning score. Sri Lanka had played here more than once and hence, they would be confident of levelling the series.
