Match Date & Time:
2022-04-23 03:30 PM (IST) 2022-04-23 10:00 AM (GMT)
Match Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai, India
Pitch at DY Patil has good piece of bounce, batters enjoy the condition along side the pacers.
We can see a lot of what weve seen all season, lots of grass, and that should help the quicks a bit. The ball should come onto the bat nicely as it has done at this venue. Having a closer look at the track, it seems to be a bit dry and the cracks look like they could open up sooner than later. Not saying that it will be a raging turner but there should be a little something in there for the spinners. Gut feel, win the toss and bat first." reckons Nick Knight.
The weather will be clean and bright with sun out in the middle.
