Asia Cup Match No 2 India vs Pakistan Pitch Report
With an average of 160-170 being scored at the Dubai Cricket Stadium, it can be a danger to bat explosively, as happened with Sri Lanka yesterday. Dubai’s straight boundaries are very short, which the batsmen can take full advantage of. There’s also some seam movement and extra bounce. Spinners can have the upper hand in the middle overs.
