pitch report

The history of the pitch at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium has been favorable to the batting side. The bowlers are likely to get some help in the early stages of the match. The batsmen will get a chance to settle down in the middle overs. In the latter, the spinners will come in handy if the surface cracks. If rain interrupts, it could affect the playing conditions.
