    Sri Lanka Vs Ireland Pitch Report

    If we go by the recent Warm Up games is expected to be a touch slower than usual. Apart from pace and bounce, the slower bowlers have also turned out to be a bit handy so far. Thus, it will be interesting to see if the pitch behaves like a typical Aussie wicket offering some genuine pace and bounce or offers some assistance to the spinners as well. The par score is expected to be around 150-160.
