Pitch & Conditions:
Surprisingly, there was a lot of grass on the pitch in the first three games, which generally, isn’t the case in Rajkot. But, the pitch is expected to be slow as the tournament progresses. Spinners have always had success at this venue & can dominate the back end of the tournament here as well.

Wk: Jackson (VC-1)
Batsmen: Parmar, Pujara (C), Chaaya, Pathak/Shaikh
