Weather Report

Pitch Condition/Report:

The humidity levels rise as the night progresses. This could potentially quicken up the pitch and the ball might come on to the bat slightly better in the second innings of the game.

Average first innings score: 66 (Last two T10 matches played at the venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1, Tied – 0
