Pitch

It will be the seventh match of the tournament at the venue. The teams batting first have won two, and the teams batting second have won four games. The surface looks good for batting. However, the cloudy conditions might assist the fast bowlers. The spinners may come in handy given the wear and tear the pitch has undergone through the course of the competition.

Weather

The weather is expected to be warm and see decreasing clouds. The maximum temperature attained during the match will be 29 degrees Celsius. There will be a 100 percent cloud cover and a three percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the west-northwest.
