Pitch Conditions:

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
In the IPL matches, this wicket was neutral with pacers and batsmen getting the somewhat extra advantage. However, in the recent Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe series this wicket was batting friendly.

The wicket used in the last match was slow and 2 paced. Both spinners and Pacers were getting assistance with the wicket in the last match. You can expect scores in the range of 140-160 if same type of wicket is used. As match will start early so due factor will play very less role. Team winning the shot should bowl first.

Last 4 matches:
LAH: 144/5, ISL: 143/9
AFG: 183/7, ZIM: 136/5
