Match Prediction

  • There is a vast difference between the ODI rankings of both the teams. The hosts are at the 9th position while the visitors are on the top of the chart. This clearly shows which team is more dominant over the other one.
  • The game will be a moderate scoring game. The average score for the first innings is approximately 230 while for the second innings, it is 210 runs. However, the highest total in this field had been 363 runs. So, you can expect a good score if the visitor’s bat first.
  • It will be difficult for the hosts to play with a positive frame of mind because of the dominant position of the hosts. Therefore, they might not be able to enjoy the home ground advantage in their favour.
