The pitches have been pretty good for batting in both the matches so far. However, there has been some turn on offer. The surface could be a little slower this time as this is the third consecutive ODI at this venue.
The bad news is that there is a forecast for rain throughout the day. We might not have full 100 overs and the DLS method could come into play if at all a game is possible. The maximum temperature would be 29°C while the humidity would be around 81%.
