Venue Details and Pitch Report
05 Aug, 07:30 PM IST
The pitch so far has been a batting paradise with scores in excess of 100 being a common occurence. The outfield is lightning quick which further aids the batsman. The bowlers need to consistently bowl at three-quarters length, if they want to get away as the pitch offers some spongy bounce from that length.
According to Accuweather, it will be furnace hot today here in Dubai as the maximum temperature is expected to breach the 40 degree celsius mark. The players will have a long 10-overs in the gruelling heat of UAE.
The Table toppers SBK will be facing TAD who are at the bottom of the league table. Unless some divine intervention takes place, this match is going to be one lopsided contest.
