The 33rd match of the ICC World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Sri Lanka on Thursday, November 2 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
With an unblemished record of six wins in the World Cup 2023, India currently holds the top spot on the points table. As they approach their next game, their primary goal is to uphold their winning streak throughout the tournament.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka‘s World Cup 2023 journey has been challenging, with just two wins out of six matches, eliminating them from the semi-finals chase. They currently find themselves at the lower end of the points table and could strive to play the role of party poopers in the tournament.
However, before heading into this game, let’s take a look at the pitch report of the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai:
IND vs SL: Wankhede Stadium Pitch Report
Wankhede Stadium boasts a batting-friendly pitch, promising a high-scoring contest this Thursday. Batters will have the opportunity to unleash their shots confidently, with the ball likely to come onto the bat smoothly. However, bowlers must maintain a tight line and length due to the limited margin for error.
Over the course of history, this ground has been the setting for 30 ODI matches. Out of these, 16 were clinched by teams batting first, and 15 by those chasing, which indicates that the toss may not wield a big impact on the game’s ultimate result.
