Pallekele has hosted quite a few ODI games till now. Out of these games, it is the team batting second that has found the maximum advantage.
The average score batting first is around 248 here. This is a decent number and the batters, with their improved power hitting, can target a score of around 300. While the pitch offers a balance between the bat and the ball, as the game goes on though, the spinners are likely to find some assistance.
