pitch report

One of the best places in the world to play a Twenty20 game is unquestionably the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This is one of those places where almost everyone can get some kind of assistance. The pitch is ideal for batting, but the ground’s larger boundaries also bring bowlers into the game.

So far, two BBL 12 matches have been played here, with the teams that batted first winning both times. The average score in the first innings is 162 runs. At the MCG, a drop-in pitch with an even amount of bounce will be used, and batters will enjoy spending time in the middle. This one had to be run again in advance of tomorrow.

Weather Forecast

At this time, there is no chance of rain. The humidity will be in the 80s, and the temperature will be around 21 degrees Celsius.
