The pitch at the R.Premadasa Stadium will once again have great assistance for the batters. There will be enough help for the spinners and the pace bowlers will have to bowl more slower deliveries to be successful. The ball is expected to come nicely onto the bat in these batting-friendly conditions. However, batting first will be a good option on this surface.
