National T20 Cup live: Pitch and Weather report
The Pindi Club Ground has enough to offer to both batsmen and bowlers. While batsmen will need some time to get the hang of the surface, once settled, playing big shots should not be that difficult. That said, teams have preferred to bat first on the ground, a trend that is expected to continue on Saturday. As for the weather, it will be a hot sunny afternoon with the temperature hovering around the 33-degree Celsius mark.
