Pitch Report

Canberra is a good pitch to bat on but in the last 2 matches pitch becoming slow especially in the second innings. It will hard to time the ball easily as the match progresses as the pitch tends to crack under hot sun. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we have seen and helps the spinners quite a bit. We are hoping that the surface is bound to get slower and be a bit more difficult for batting in this match.
