SL vs BAN T20 World Cup 2024 Pitch Conditions and Toss Outcome

The pitch conditions at the newly inaugurated Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas have proven to be a batting-friendly surface. However, the previous three games have proved to be contrasting in the early stages of T20 World Cup 2024. After a high-scoring thriller contest between Canada and the USA in the opening match of the ongoing tournament, fans were able to witness only a low-scoring thriller in the next two games of Nepal vs Netherlands and USA vs Pakistan.

The average score in T20I cricket you can expect at this venue is 150 and the toss-winning captain should decide to bowl first so that they can easily chase the target.
