The wicket is slightly on the slower side. The pitch will thus favor the bowlers, especially the ones with variations. In seven D/N matches at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, four have been won by the teams chasing.
Both sides have played two games and have lost here in a D/N contest. The captain winning the toss will opt to bat against the odds as both sides have struggled to chase under the lights.
