SCO vs NAM Ground Details

Ground: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Pitch Report: As seen in the first game on this venue, there was some swing on offer in the early part of the game but the conditions were perfect for the batsmen. Even though this will be a day-night fixture, the conditions are expected to be same but the spinners could get some purchase. The par score will remain around 160-170 with dew playing an important role. Therefore, it will be a good choice of decision to win the toss and opt to bowl first.
