Pallekele Pitch Report
It was a decent wicket to bat on in the game between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. While the ball was gripping off the surface, the batting got a bit easier during the second innings. However, if the batter could apply themselves with a solid technique the wicket has some runs to offer.
The surface is hard with dry grass to bind the wicket together. The bounce is even and hence, the batters could score runs.
