Pitch Report:

Traditionally, Mohali is one of the fastest pitches India has to offer. The pitch has pace and bounce in it, and it will help the seamers early in the innings. But, Mohali also has been full of runs and will assist the batsmen too. The true nature of pitch helps batsmen in hitting through the line, and short boundaries also aid the batsmen cause.

The overcast conditions and rain will mean the seam bowlers will fancy their chances against the batsmen.
