Match Preview

The hosts will come to win this match to continue their streak. It is expected that Shikhar Dhawan will return to the side and will lead his team with confidence. On the other hand, Faf was seen as a bit discomfort in the last match and he may miss this match. However, there is no official news from the management about his injury, so there is no assurance. 

Pitch Report

The pitch of PCA IS Bindra Stadium is exceptionally well for batters, so we can expect a high-scoring encounter in this match. There is not enough to swing and turn on this wicket, so we may see more boundaries in this match. The team winning the toss could opt for the field first. Chasing on this wicket will be a wise decision because it would be easier to play as per target.
