Sri Lanka Legends won the toss & elected to field
Live Pitch Report
Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur, Raipur
A fantastic, sporting track. When the ball is coming onto the bat, it is hard. A tinge of grass on the same wicket that was used for the India-West Indies semifinal clash so runs galore, says Nikhil Chopra. Maninder Singh opines that the pitch commands a lot of application from the players with a lot of runs in store and not much for the bowlers to extract. He also wonders if there will be a hint of confusion in Sachin Tendulkar's mind over the toss given that they have put up 200+ on both occasions while batting first. Tillakaratne Dilshan however, according to him, will certainly look to chase given that that has been their strength right through the tournament.
