Weather continues to be bright and sunny in Dublin. As has been the case throughout this week, Friday is expected to be another gorgeous day for playing cricket with maximum temperatures hovering around 18 degrees and lowest at 12 degrees.
3-252, 7-194, 7-193, 6-194, 7-181 and 4-183. If that does reveal a story about the nature of the pitch, nothing will. Flat Pitch, lush-green outfields, small boundaries: A recipe for disaster for the bowlers. Nothing but the same is expected tomorrow.
Average first innings score:215 (Record in T20I matches since 2018)
Record of chasing teams:Won – 6 Lost – 4
