India vs Pakistan: Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy | Sportz Point
Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy

The surface at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium is heavily preferred by the batters. With little to offer for the bowlers, the batters will look to dominate the game throughout although spinners can thrive on this. Aigh-scoring affair could be expected on such a surface. Choosing to bowl and chase the target could be a wise decision. Bangladesh opted to bat first in the first match here and lost the match by five wickets. 250 is the average score here.

Rain from 1:00 AM to 3:00 PM, 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, and then 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM has been predicted. There is a high chance of the match getting abandoned due to rain. The humidity level will also be close to 100 percent. Pallekele hosted the second Asia Cup 2023 match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on Thursday. Rain interrupted the match only once during the first innings.
