Pitch Report: Spinners have historically been heavily favoured at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Due to the spin-friendly feature, the game may prove to be slow during some stages. The batters will try to be patient in the beginning of the innings because the average score at this location is about 250. In the next Asia Cup Super Four match, choosing to bat first after winning the toss may be the best course of action.
