The weather for this match will be generally sunny and clear with a few scattered clouds; the temperature will be good for cricket at around 27°C. There is no chance of rain, and the game will be played in its entirety.



In general, the Arnos Vale Ground’s track is a favourable one to bat on. With its shorter boundaries, the batsmen will get the most out of their shots on this pitch. However, as the game develops, the wicket slows down, making it tougher to chase. Spinners will benefit from the track more than pacers, who will have to bowl tight lines and lengths. At this site, the average first-innings score is 90 runs.
