Pitch Report and Conditions

The 5th Match match of Big Bash League 2021-22 is going to be held at Perth Stadium, Perth. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we have seen and helps the spinners quite a bit. We are hoping that the surface is bound to get slower and be a bit more difficult for batting in this match. A score of 185 is going to be tough to chase.


The weather forecast in Perth is predicting some clouds around on match day but the weather forecast does not predict rain. We should be able to have a full uninterrupted match.
