Pitch Report and Details

     At the Dubai International Stadium, teams batting second have had a definite advantage recently, winning 19 of the last 23 T20Is played here. As they did during the Asia Cup 2022 matches at this stadium, the pacers will get significant seam movement off the deck with the new ball, which will make things difficult for the batsmen early on. The average score in 83 T20I matches played here since 2009 has been 146.8 runs, making this stadium a typically low-scoring venue where the team bowling first controls the game from the outset.
