Greenfield Stadium Pitch Report

Greenfield International fields haven’t been noted for producing big scores since the four international games played there were all low-scoring or quick affairs. India handily defeated the West Indies in the lone ODI played there by restricting them to 104 runs.

Spin had done its magic on that particular day, but that was more than four years ago. But scoring runs for a visiting club hasn’t been easy. In the most recent game, even though it was a T20 match, seamers delighted in bowling on the track. Therefore, the captain who wins the toss will have to make a challenging choice.

Weather Forecast

On Sunday, the high is forecast to be 31 degrees Celsius in the afternoon, and the low will be 23 degrees C in the evening. There is no chance of rain on game day or in the days preceding it. As a result, the weather won’t affect the game.
