It’s a tailor-made surface for the batters to score runs easily. There will also be some bounce and carry for the bowlers in the initial stages of the game. However, as the game progresses, spinners will come into the picture.
The bowlers, especially quick ones need to be precise with their lines and lengths if they have to pick wickets here. Batting first should be an ideal choice here but teams opting to bowl first after winning the toss shouldn’t be an astonishing pick.
