A high-scoring game is on the cards going by how things have panned out over the last few days. The pitch doesn't offer much help to the bowlers, with change of pace being their only real weapon. The smaller boundaries also play into the hands of the batsmen, who should feel at ease in the middle while playing the big shots.
