R Premadasa Pitch Report

The pitch on this ground has helped batters and spin bowlers in the past and fans should thus expect some high-scoring encounters. The pitches are slow in pace and low in bounce with the pitches being flat. The dew factor is a big deciding factor in teams wanting to bat second on this ground.

Being away from the sea, the dew plays a crucial role as the ball gets difficult to hold resulting in match-winning run chases in white-ball format.
