Pitch Report

The pitch used for the previous between India and Bangladesh was a high-scoring affair with some help from the pace bowlers initially then becoming a good pitch to bat on. Bangladesh posted 265 for 8 in 50 overs while India fell short of the target by 6 runs despite Shubman Gill’s 121.

Both teams have top-quality spinners creating an impact on the match. It would likely help the spinners and would be tough to bat on. The captain that wins the toss would bat first and put up a decent total putting pressure on the opponent team.
