Dubai Pitch Report:

RELATED NEWS

The surface at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium is a decent one to bat on, with 170 being a good total at the venue. Even though there isn’t much turn available off the surface, the pacers will get some extra bounce and movement early on. Whereas the spinners will look to make use of the skewed dimensions of the ground and the batters will have to endure their time in the middle. Just like other pitches in the Middle East, the surface at Dubai tends to get slower as the match progresses and the teams winning the toss prefer to bowl first.
