    Pitch report

    Anjum Chopra says the average score on the pitch tonight is not that great - 123. Tonight, also there is indication that it’s a bit damp because of the moisture content is slightly high. It can just hold up slightly, the advantage for the spinners in the initial part of the game is there. Most teams like to chase because one side of the ground is slightly shorter than the other side.
