Pitch was super slow
and damp so ball wasn't reaching boundary
200 on this pitch was like 300
Just 20 boundaries in full match and cgeck no of 3s and 2
those are boundary on a normal surface .
We have fast outfeild on any ground now days this was an exception. And due to slowness aerial shos can not be played.
These are typical shreelankan pitch of 90s where they would defend 210-220 easily
Dhoni batted slow but others weren't great too mainting a strike rate 70 was almost impossible here
