The pitch will help the spinners to a large extent in the game. The pacers, on the other hand, might be a tad easier to play. Chasing should be the preferred option for teams.
It’s expected to be mildly humid and as the match progresses, the temperatures are expected to fall from 33 to approximately 27 degrees.
