The pitch looks like a pure batting wicket with bowlers finding it tough to get anything off the surface early on. But chasing teams will find it slightly hard as the pitch tends to slow down as the innings progresses.
All three matches this season at this venue have been won by teams batting first and thus the captain winning the toss will look to bat first.
