A typical 22-yard strip on which pacers would have initial edge before it eases for the batsmen, while offering some turn to the spinners as well.
Hopefully there is a little bit in it early, it’s going to be good to bat on, and then take a little bit of spin and some inconsistency later in the game.
A drop-in track is being used in the game but Hough said its core character would be the same as a traditional pitch.
5. Pros and Cons:-
- Great Batting Line Up
- Young Brigade
- Defending Champions
- Inconsistent Bowlers
- Poor Form
- Poor Performance in Australia and New Zealand
- Good Bowling Line Up
- Poor Form
- Never won a World Cup Match against India
6. World Cup History:-
In the past they had 5 encounters during World Cups, India has never to lost to Pakistan in a World Cup match and they have a great track record when they play against Pakistan in the World Cups.
India definitely has an edge of the Men in green as Pakistan has no player that can be called in form and the team looks quite low. Even the History supports the men in blue so does the stats.
