Pitch Report

The SGC is usually a good batting surface which also provides plenty of assistance for both pacers and spinners. The par score is expected to be somewhere around 170. With the humidity levels increasing as the contest progresses, a team prefers chasing, but since the sides batting first have won an estimated 47.7% of the BBL matches at this venue, the captain calling it right at the toss will look to put runs on the board.
