Venue Stats

Average 1st Innings Score: 216 (From 1 match played at this venue so far in this season)

Average 2nd Innings Score: 200 (From 1 match played at this venue so far in this season)

Pitch Conditions

The pitch here is very good for batting as the ball nicely coms on to the bat and also the boundaries are very short. We already have seen a high scoring match at this venue this season. In this ground Sanju Samson scored 74 runs in 32 balls.

Although there will be the dew factor in the 2nd innings, the team batting first will have an advantage as the pitch tends to slow down in the 2nd innings and the batsmen will struggle to hit big shots.

Weather Conditions

There is no chance of rain on the match day, and the temperature is expected to be around 34 degrees.
