Pitch Report The conditions are pretty windy and there is a strong breeze blowing across the playing area. The ground conditions are absolutely in fine order. The 22 yard strip to be used for this game has an even coverage of grass throughout and there are a few cracks here and there. A little bit of juice as well and as these are early days of Twenty20, we might again see the captain who wins the toss pushing the opposition in to bat first.
