The pitch at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium has been a good one to bat on. The ball comes on to the bat nicely, enabling the batters to play shots on the up. While the fast bowlers get some movement early on, there is some turn on offer for the spinners as well. The last two Women's Senior One Day Trophy games at the venue saw 254 and 218 being defended. There is no doubt that the captain winning the toss will want to bat first.
