Average 2nd Innings Score: 150 (From 7 matches played at this venue so far in this season)

Pitch Conditions

The pitch here is considered neutral, but the batsmen have a little advantage. The team winning the toss would want to bowl first because of the dew factor in the 2nd innings.

But the results so far have been favorable for the team batting first because the pitch tends to slow down in the 2nd innings, and it becomes difficult to time the ball.

Anything over 160 in the 1st innings can be considered to be a fighting total. Total 7 matches played here so far in Dream11 IPL 2020. The team batting first won 7 matches, out of which Super Overs decided two matches.

Weather Conditions

There is no chance of rain on the match day, and the temperature is expected to be in mid-thirties.
