London: One thing that is impossible to miss during a pre-match practice and press conference is the mood in the camp. And it could not have been more contrasting than what was visible on Wednesday as India and Sri Lanka geared up for the crucial Group B encounter to be played at the Oval on Thursday.
The weather is predicted to be cloudy but dry, meaning we are likely to get a full game. There was a bit of grass on the surface, and with cloudy over head conditions, you can expect the pitch to assist the fast bowlers for atleast the initial overs.
