Pallekele International Cricket Stadium pitch report

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium will host the Lanka Premier League 2022’s first match. The Pallekele pitches have been great batting tracks and can give the opposition some life after the extreme batting states of the Hambantota leg.

The pitch is flat and the track in Pallekele bounces evenly. A new pitch will be used in the first game, and it should definitely favor batters. At this very setting, there is adequate help for hitters because of the quick outfield and more modest limits.

At this location, the most recent ODI series between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan had an average score of 173 runs. In the final T20I match between Sri Lanka and Australia at this venue, Sri Lanka successfully chased the target of 177 runs.

The spinners will undoubtedly receive some assistance on this surface, but overall, it is a great batting surface. In this match, both captains have the option of chasing with the dew in mind.
