Known for its batting-friendly wicket, Holkar stadium might assist bowlers in the early overs of the second T20I between India and Sri Lanka, to be held in Indore on Friday, Madhya Pradesh CA curator Samandar Singh Chouhan suggested.
"It was cloudy here yesterday and there is same forecast for tomorrow. In that case, dew won't fall before 7:30 or 7:45 which means first 10 overs won't be affected by dew. Still, bowling first will be a good option for captain winning the toss," Chouhan said on Thursday.
The first T20I, which India won by 93 runs to take 1-0 lead on Wednesday, witnessed the dew affecting the proceedings in Cuttack from the very first ball. Both Indian and Sri Lankan spinners struggled to grip the ball properly in Cuttack. It won't be the case in Indore, assured the curator.
"We have been using a chemical which prevents grass from getting wet. It causes dew to slip. We will use the substance tomorrow as well to negate the dew factor," Chouhan added.
