Kerava has a sunny day but the temperatures might go below 10 degrees Celsius. The cold conditions may hold extra moisture beneath the pitch to slow down the track further.
Both matches ended up as low scoring contests with scores around 120-140 runs only. Bowlers have picked up 37 wickets in two matches and the pitch is very helpful to both seamers and spinners.
Both matches played here are won by teams batting first and we expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.
