Gaddafi Stadium Pitch report:

Gaddafi Stadium’s pitch is considered very good for the batters, as the ball comes on to the bat very nicely. However, spinners might get some help with the pitch as the game progresses, but seamers are likely to struggle on this wicket due to the lack of good bounce. A high-scoring game can be seen here.
