Pitch and Conditions

You will find Sophia Gardens in Cardiff to be a big venue. This has presented several challenges to the batters over the years. Due to the big boundaries, batters prefer to not play the ball in the air. There is some help available for the speedsters from this pitch especially early on in the match. There is some assistance available for the spinners as well as you can get turn and bounce.

It is expected that we will get cloud cover during the game to be played at Cardiff later today. There is a good chance that showers will come down during the match. So, batting on this track might not be quite so easy and batters will have to concentrate on collecting runs here. Any team batting first will look to score 140 runs on this surface.
