The pitch at the DY Patil Stadium is somewhat slower than in prior games. Early on, the new ball should travel around, keeping the batters on their feet. However, as the game develops, the surface should slow down, allowing spinners to come into play. After winning the toss, both teams will look to chase, with dew likely to play a role in the second innings.
The temperature is expected to vary between 31°C on Thursday, with a humidity of 73% and a wind speed of 13 km/hr. The weather will be clear.
