“It’s a great surface. The groundsman has done a fantastic job. There’s a bit of grass on top, but it’s dry and hard underneath. This pitch, under lights, has quickened up a little bit. Little bit of dew settling in, not heavy to notice. If you are batting first and if you are not getting the pace off the pitch, don’t fight in. Settle in, rotate strike and pick your areas against the poor balls,” - Kumar Sangakkara
