IND vs SL 2023: Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

Sri Lanka did well to level the series at Pune. Now, the decider will happen at Rajkot on Saturday. Here, we look at the pitch report of Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium and the weather conditions in Rajkot for IND vs SL 2023.

India was close to losing the first game and in the second match, they fought hard to stay close to the target despite the early setback. However, Sri Lanka has been brilliant in both departments. While Dasun Shanaka has been excellent, the management might want the other batters to also step up as they did in Pune.

India, though, will have quite a few issues. In both games, the top-order failed and it was the lower middle-order that made the overall performance look decent. Hence, the likes of Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill must contribute better. With the ball, the youngsters must maintain discipline and that should be sufficient for now. Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel had a good game with the ball and will want to do well again.
