The chasing team has had an impressive record on this wicket. So the captain winning the toss could look to bowl first and put pressure on the opposition.
The pacers are expected to pick wickets in the initial overs as they will likely get extra bounce and movement. As the game progresses, the surface could assist the spinners in the middle overs if they bowl the right lengths on the pitch.
