Toss will play a vital role in today’s contest. According to trendeetalk.com, the team who will win the toss today will choose to bowl first because it’s not a batting-first condition in Rawalpindi. So batting first will increase the winning chances for the bowling team. Toss winning team should opt to bowl first.
There will be a number of clouds during the match time in Rawalpindi. These days the weather isn’t great for cricket in Pindi. While the temperature will be between 13 and 26-degree celsius. So the weather will interfere with the gameplay a little bit. There will be humidity in the air as well.
