Pitch Condition: Over the years, the pitch has had a good track for the batters. But it’s not at all a perfect space to score big runs. Because it has a hard and dry pitch which is considered spin-friendly. The last time the stadium witnessed a high-scoring match on this pitch. As we look at the last IPL records a score of 160+ can be considered as good to defend here. However, choosing to bat first is considered a wise decision here.
