Dubai Stadium Pitch Report
The pitch in Dubai has been on the slower side and has been kinder to the bowlers than batters. The average first innings score in T20Is at the venue is 145 and in 62 matches teams have scored 170+ runs only 11 times. However, teams batting first have won more games so batting first appears to be the better option.
