Batting is a bit tricky on this surface as there have barely been high scoring games at this venue. Batsmen will have to work hard to get value for their shots. After winning the toss, batting first is a good option as the teams chasing hasn’t fared well.
It’s going to be a sunny morning in Bangalore with temperatures rising as it reaches afternoon time. There are no chances of rain.
