Pitch report by Saba Karim

"This is a fresh wicket and for the first time this pitch is being used in the Champions Trophy. There is fresh grass, which means the pace bowlers will get some lateral movement. When I put my hand on it, I can feel the moisture. I don't see any assistance for the spinners. One would be tempted to bowl first here," opines Saba Karim.
