Pitch Report

The Wankhede wicket is a perfect batting surface and a run-fest can be expected once the batters are well set at the crease. The last two matches in this tournament witnessed the teams batting first unable to post a challenging total on the board which eventually never turned out to be enough while defending. While the teams do not hesitate to bat first during afternoon games, the same is not the case during the evening matches as the dew factor makes its presence felt at this venue. Therefore, the captain that wins the toss would decide to bowl first.

Weather Report:

The temperature is expected to hover around 31°C on the matchday with 53% humidity and 11 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
