PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The weather forecast for this match is a little bit worrying for both the teams. There is a 37% chance of rain in Lincoln on Tuesday and there will be a fair bit of wind blowing as well. It will also be chilly as the temperature 12-14 Degrees Celsius during the match.
The dark clouds will hover around the stadium for the whole duration of the match. The ball might swing a bit. But that shouldn’t change the nature of the pitch by much. A decent batting track was on offer in the first game and the same should continue for this encounter as well.
