Pitch Report and Conditions
The fourth match of the Lanka Premier League is going to take place at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota. We had seen in the last matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we’ve seen and helps the spinners tremendously. We are hoping that the surface will slow down and it will be a bit difficult to bat in this match.
Weather report for today’s match
The weather forecast for Hambantota is good for this cricket match. There is almost no chance of rain in this area and we are hoping that we will have a full match to enjoy.
