We have seen all sorts of things here in Abu Dhabi. There have been high scoring matches and there have been matches where teams have bundled out for a lot less. However, there's been a clear trend in the morning games. In those games, the surface here has gone slower with every passing over and batting has been increasingly difficult. As it is a day game, dew is not going to be a factor. Considering all that, the team batting first should be pretty happy with anything over 165 runs on the board.
The surfaces in the morning games tend to get slower with every passing game. That can be a blessing for the team batting first only if they have runs on the board. If not it could mean a walk in the park for the team chasing. While setting up the total will be difficult, we expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.
