Games at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium is producing games at 160-170. Yesterday, it was a 190+ score put up by India against Hong Kong. The surface is not ideal for explosive batting but yesterday we saw some very explosive batting from India. Boundaries are very short here which the batsmen make good use of. Spinners have very little help from this surface.
