Team India are set to take on Netherlands in their next T20 World Cup 2022 clash on Thursday, October 27, at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). While there was a lot of talk about the weather of Melbourne ahead of India’s meeting against Pakistan, there is less chance of Sydney weather playing spoilsport, despite predictions of overcast conditions.
Rohit Sharma and Co registered an emphatic four-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan courtesy of heroics from Virat Kohli who scored unbeaten 82 runs. The Men in Blue chased down the required total of 160 runs on the last ball itself, with Ravichandran Ashwin hitting the winning boundary.
While fans were worried about Melbourne weather, they shouldn’t be too worried about the same as rain is less likely to have a say in Sydney.

Teams have traditionally preferred to chase at the SCG. It could rain runs aplenty as the pitch is expected to favour the batsmen. Pace attacks are likely to be subdued, while the spinners could have a meaningful say in the game. As the match progresses the pitch will open up, thus chasing will be the perfect option.
