It would be interesting to see the pitch – the colour – it has green or not. The curator in charge of preparing the pitch has already hinted that it would be a sporting wicket. The pitch is likely to be hard, assist bounce and ample carry. That would allow strokeplay and make viewing exciting for the fans.

Eyes would also be on the toss as to what the captains opt to do. In all likelihood, the team winning the toss may want to bowl first – not knowing what the pitch has to offer.

The WTC final will start at 3:30 PM IST. And you can stream the game live on Hotstar and follow the LIVE blog on India.com.
