It would be another warm & clear day with an average temperature of 31 degree Celsius. No chances of rain interruptions, while dew could play a key role in the later stages.
Wankhede Stadium has been great to bat on as the ball come onto the bat nicely. The captain who will win the toss should opt to bowl first as dew in the later stage will make it difficult for the bowlers to bowl in the second innings. Any total above 190-200 seems to be competitive.
