Pitch & Weather Report 

Shere Bangla National Stadium has been good in the last game providing aid to the spinners in the middle overs. We expect the pitch to slow down due to the used nature in this match between KHT and SYL. Both sides will be looking to win the toss, bowl first and restrict the opposing team to less than 155 runs. The previous three matches have been won by side batting second. Both captains want to bowl first on this track as the dew might settle down and trouble the bowlers to grip the ball as the match progresses. The last 3 matches are won by teams chasing the target here.
