Danny Morrison in on the pitch for pitch report: “This is Pitch number 5. The similar one where SRH played against the home side. The home side won the high-scoring game by 4 runs and expect a similar run-fair today. 67m and 62m side boundaries, 75m to the straight. The moisture and humidity in the air and cool degrees can help the pacers with the new ball”

08:28 PM- The drying rollers are rolling all over the ground and they are quick on their work. The ground looks much more ready now.
