THU vs STR Weather and Pitch Report
Accuweather has predicted that there will be no rain interruptions and so teams will get to play the full quota of overs. The temperature will swing around 30 degree Celsius.
The pitch at the Adelaide Oval is expected to be a good one to bat on, but there could be some help on offer for the pacers too.
The ball should skid on to the bat nicely, and the spinners are likely to extract some turn as the game progresses. Wickets in hand could be key for both sides, and 160-170 runs is likely to be a par-score at this venue.
Nevertheless, with the complexion of the pitch not expected to change much during the game, both teams could look to chase after winning the toss.
