The Pitch here in the PALLEKELE Stadium is reported to not generate a lot of pace. The cloudy conditions should help the fast bowlers, and also slow down the deterioration of the deck.

PALLEKELE INTERNATIONAL STADIUM (PALLEKELE) Pitch Report

Test Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

The bowlers didn’t get any assistance from the pitch and also there was no change in the surface as the match progressed. The pitch remained flat throughout the game. The venue is best remembered for holding the world record for the highest Test total – 952/6 declared by Sri Lanka against India in 1997/1998. Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya scored 340 and Roshan Mahanama 225 in this game. The pair shared a partnership of 576 for the second wicket, which was then the highest for any wicket in a Test Match. This venue is not known for having a deck that produces a lot of pace, and it's not a flat track like the one in Galle, which saw both sides pad their batting averages nicely on the way to a stalemate. In last 10 years total 2 test matches played in this ground and both the matches won by bowling first team
