Pitch Report

This will be the very first match on this ground. The 1st innings score at Church Street Park in Morrisville has a 1st innings score of 160 runs. The pitch should be nice and hard and the captain choosing to bat instruct his team to score over 180 runs in order to keep enough drawer for their bowlers. 

This is a true sporting wicket which provides equal chances for both the batters and bowlers. The Pacers will do exceptionally well in this venue. We expect the weather to be clear but a little bit warmer than the other days.

Match Prediction

Washington has performed well in the previous two matches. However, the side needs to burn some more wood to get qualified for the next round of the inaugural edition of the Major T20 League. Their bowlers must be prepared to restrict San Francisco. SFU on the other side have a strong batting order, putting them in a better position in the match. Hence we expect, San Francisco to win this match.
