Bad news for Sri Lankans

Testing conditions 

could make for a low 

scoring affair in 

second Cricket T20 

between

India and Sri Lanka


The prevailing weather conditions in Mohali aren’t ideal
for Twenty20 cricket and could test both teams when
batting and fielding. The dew factor and how
he wicket will play is sure to worry skippers
Sangakkara and Dhoni.
According to Indian media reports, the temperature
after dark in Mohali has been no warmer than 9
degrees celcius this week.
Punjab Cricket Association’s chief curator told
the media on Thursday  that batting under
floodlights would not be easy. The wicket is
said to have more pace and bounce and is
expected to assist the quick bowlers.
They are not conditions in which Sri Lanka
have thrived on. While the pace and bounce may
assist Sri Lanka’s medium pace opening bowlers,
none of them, thus far, have troubled the Indian
batsman on this tour.
While batting first may be ideal for the team winning
the toss, bowling last could present a nightmare scenario
for a team defending a low total.
After the devastating loss in Nagpur, India risk
loosing the series 20.
