    IND vs SL Pitch Report

    The pitch at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium is expected to have some favourable conditions for the batsmen that will benefit both India and Sri Lanka. The conditions will improve for the bowlers as the game progresses when the pitch wears down a bit. 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.
