Oval Pitch Report
The pitch has slightly spongy bounce and predictions are in favor of Australians more used of that. Oval is one of the pitch where a little bit of extra bounce which gives favor to Ausies slightly. The Australian pace attack is a good one despite of it India team is geared to play that attack & India Team has done well in the past against Ausies pace attack.
Bowlers from both sides have been in good form in the tournament matches and wouldn’t look to mend much with their attack for Sunday’s big clash. India may look to play an extra pacer Mohammad Sham, because the pitch at the oval gives an extra pace and bounce. If this change takes place in the Indian side, team might have to ruled out “Chinaman” Kuldeep Yadav who hasn’t been in best of forms in recent times including IPL which concluded last month.
