Mumbai, Team India will start the new year with a T20 match against Sri Lanka. The match will be played at the historic Wankhede ground in Mumbai. The fans are hoping that the weather will not be a hindrance in this first match of the year and they will get a chance to go full match. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, Team India will take a hearty lead in this series and batsmen like Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad will get a chance to prove themselves.
Talking about the weather of Mumbai, chances of rain are negligible. According to the information of the Meteorological Department, the temperature on January 3 is estimated to be between 25-27 degrees. There is no chance of rain on Tuesday so fans will get to experience the thrilling match without any hindrance. As for humidity, it will be 60 percent and the sky is expected to remain cloudy at 45 percent.
Nowadays, the playing eleven of the team changes depending on the pitch. The same thing happened in the second Test against Bangladesh, when Jaydev Undkat was replaced by the man of the match of the previous match, Kuldeep. That is why the role of pitch is being considered very important. Talking about Wankhede, both fast and spin bowlers will get help here.
A lot of runs are scored on the pitch here, hence the big scoring matches. Mist will be a problem in the evening so the team winning the toss will choose to bowl first. Here the team chasing the target has won 5 out of 7 times.
