Thipatcha Putthawong

Pitch:

The 22 dry yards at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium please the spinners and pacers with variations can look to extract enough from the surface. The batters ideally should look to spend some time in the middle and then opt to switch gears in wanting to play aggressive cricket. With that said, a target around the 145 mark should bring to us a good competitive game.

Weather :

It simply could turn out to be a disappointing day of cricket if the rain gods don’t stay kind as the radar has rains forecasted from early morning hours till early evening and the temperature hovers around the late 20s and early 30s.

Fantasy playing XI :
