Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Pitch Report

Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram is renowned for its spin-friendly wicket, making it a paradise for bowlers. Matches held at this venue often witness low scoring encounters due to the challenging conditions. However, there is an additional factor that could further impact the game: the high chance of rain during the BAN vs AFG 3rd ODI match. As a result, it is likely that some overs may be curtailed, as we witnessed in the first ODI.

The pitch itself offers significant assistance to the bowlers, especially the spinners. With its favorable conditions for turn and bounce, the spinners can exploit the pitch’s nature to trouble the batsmen. Consequently, the batters may find it challenging to score freely and build substantial partnerships, resulting in low scoring affairs. Moreover, the pitch tends to offer more assistance to the batsmen during the first inning compared to the second. The moisture and variable bounce early on can create difficulties for the opening batsmen. However, as the game progresses, the wicket tends to settle down, making it relatively easier for batsmen in the second inning.

On Tuesday in Chattogram, the weather forecast predicts cloudy skies with a temperature of approximately 31°C. There is a 30% possibility of rain, while the humidity is expected to be around 71%. Furthermore, a moderate wind speed of approximately 17 km/h is anticipated.
