Pitch and weather report:
as seen in the previous 6 matches, whoever will bowl first will win but there is no telling when this streak is defeated so in order to defeat this streak, the batting first will have to put a good show with the bat and then the bowlers will have to restrain the opposition batters. With little no spin or swing, this task will be really tough.
Tomorrow’s weather will be really pleasant with the temperature predicted to be around 24 degrees Celsius with 67% humidity and a 4% chance of rain.
