BAN vs SL Pitch Report

The pitch at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is expected to have some favourable conditions for the bowlers and batsmen. The conditions will allow the spinners to come into play as the Test match progresses. The captain winning the toss should choose to bat first as batting in the fourth innings is never easy in the Indian conditions. Thus, picking more of spinners and batsmen will be a good option from the fantasy cricket point of view.
