The pitch for the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at the Sardar Patel stadium in Ahmedabad is likely to favour seamers in the first couple of days, pitch curator Dhiraj Parsana said on Friday in  Ahmedabad. The first test begins on November 16.

"This time we have tried to make a result oriented pitch. It would depend on how the bowlers exploit it," Parsana told reporters.

 "The pitch has 8-10 mm of grass on it and the surface is hard. There has been a change in climate over the few days and the temperature has also come down considerably," he said.

"Considering the changes, the pitch is likely to help the seamers in the first couple of days," Parsana said.

He said that the pitch was new and different from the one on which India played South Africa April last year. PTI
