The pitch is a batting paradise for batsmen who are willing to spend some time in the hittle. Hitting through the line is possible but only when batsmen hold their shape. Wild slogging won't help much. With the ball coming on nicely, the batters have used the shorter boundaries to their advantage. Scores will hover around the 90-100 mark on an average.
The weather forecast predicts sunshine with some amount of cloud cover throughout the rain. It can rain but the matches shouldn't be rain-curtailed. The temperature will remain around the 20 degree celsius mark and that should make for pleasant playing conditions for players.
SCC has some fire-house performers in Usman Sarwar and Mokhtar Ghulami who have the required ammo to turn the game on its head. The team mangaement will be hoping that they fire all-cylinders as the SCC side revolves a lot around them. As for HCC, the like of praveen Kumar Jr. in the bowling department will have to do the major lifting work. The team has blown hot,blown cold and will be looking to put some consistent performances.
Last 5 Head To Head
HCC had a mix-bag yesterday, winning one and losing one against the mighty WZC. However, they have looked like a team with purpose and confidence, therefore expect a tough fight for the SCC side who had won their first game against AMC.
