The pitch at the Sophia Gardens is a good one to bat on with little help on offer for the pacers. Although there shouldn’t be much swings on offer for the bowlers, the spinners should ideally get some turn off the surface, making for an even contest in the middle overs.
Wickets in hand will be key in the Hundred format, with 140 being a par total. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with the pitch not likely to change much during the game.
