The Dubai International Stadium boasts a neutral wicket i.e. it helps both – the bowlers as well as batsmen. If we consider the last year’s PSL stats, the Dubai pitch aided pacers in league matches and turned favorable for batsmen in knockout games. Moreover, the toss-winning team is expected to bowl first.
