World T20: India-Pakistan match at HPCA will be high-scoring, says curator
Indo-Pak match is scheduled to take place on March 19 at HPCA Stadium.
New Delhi: The most anticipated clash of the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 2016 between arch-rivals India and Pakistan is expected to be a high-scoring game, according to the ground’s curator of Dharamsala.
The high-voltage Indo-Pak match is scheduled to take place on March 19 at the picturesque Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium.
“For Twenty20s, you know how the wickets are. This one will also be the same; it will be a batsman friendly wicket. The pitch is such that it will be a high scoring game,” HPCA chief curator Sunil Chauhan told IANS.
Chauhan further said that the outfield of the ground will be lightening quick.
“Currently, we are preparing the outfield. If you see the ground on February 28 or 29, you will see a lush green field unlike now,” added Chauhan.
Dharamsala is going to host six qualifying matches of the World Twenty20 from March 9 to 13 and two main tournament games.
Trans-Tasman rivals Australia and New Zealand will square off on March 18 followed by the India-Pakistan encounter.
