The Dubai International Cricket Stadium has been described as a batting paradise. Unlike most other surfaces in the country, which provide a good bounce for fast bowlers and turn for spinners during day matches, Dubai's pitch continues to support batters as the match progresses. The toss winning team should opt to field first since the dew often comes into play during evening matches, which makes it harder to maintain line and length for bowlers.
In the early overs, the Pacers can receive some good support from the ground. In the middle overs, spinners who can bowl a variety of different deliveries could come in handy.
Upcoming India vs Scotland match will be played on 5th November at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai City. The game will be played during the night.
