Ranchi:  Basu Dev, curator of the newly built JSCA International Stadium, expects the team batting first to score approximately 350 runs. India will take on England in the third One-Day International (ODI) here Saturday on what he calls a sporty wicket.

"I have prepared a sporty wicket which will have a true bounce. The bounce will not be too low or too high. It is a bit green too and will dry as the match progresses. I expect the team batting first to score around 350 runs," said Basu Dev, who is a Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) employee.

Daljit Singh, chairman of the ground and pitches committee of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), along with zonal curator Ashish Kumar Bhowmik, were also here to oversee the preparation of the pitch.
