Pitch report:

Arun Jaitley Stadium pitch is ideal for spinners. Batters need some time to get settled on the pitch. After some time batters can go for the extravagant shots. It is also advised to the bowlers first to assess the pitch. This could be the correct choice at this venue for the skipper who wins the toss.

Weather report:

The weather department has confirmed that the day will be mostly sunny. The humidity will be around 45% which will provide comfortable playing conditions. It has been also confirmed that the wind speed will be around 11 km/hr.

The focussed players from Sri Lanka:

 Rahmatullah Gurbaz & Kusal Mendis of the team Sri Lanka are grabbing all the eyes from the warm-up matches. These players can change the whole game. Every eyes will be set on these players. 

A focussed player from South Africa:

Kagiso Rabada will be a key player from the team in South Africa. The right-arm seamer played a lot of cricket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium during his time at the Delhi Capitals. This experience will help him to take the advantage of the pitch.

Our thoughts:

The team Sri Lanka is not very high on confidence after being washed out in the Asian Games & warm-up matches. So they need to be cheered up a bit to get the pace. On the other hand, team South Africa is extremely strong & known for their skills. We guess the South African team has more chance of winning.

Final words:

Do not forget to watch the match & stay tuned with sprintersgames.in to get all the updates.
