Clontarf Cricket Club Pitch Report

This cricket pitch is famous for favouring fast bowlers, offering conditions that allow the ball to behave unpredictably, which poses a significant challenge for batsmen aiming to score freely. Especially under cloudy skies, these conditions become even more challenging for the batting side. Given the nature of this pitch, winning the coin toss holds considerable importance. Teams often opt to field first after winning the toss, as chasing is typically seen as the more favourable strategy on such a surface.

Dublin Weather Forecast:

The forthcoming Dublin game is anticipated to have a slim chance, around 20%, of experiencing rain. The temperature is forecasted to stay constant at about 16 degrees Celsius, while humidity levels are expected to linger around 81%. Furthermore, brace yourself for a brisk breeze, with speeds reaching up to 19 kmph.
