Today is the first doubleheader match of this IPL season. As we all know, the pitch is of black soil, and crack starts to open as the match advances. It is a completely dry pitch where certain black spots are apparent, as the soil of the pitch us every stop, so the ball doesn’t bounce enough, and the batsmen find it difficult to score runs in the second inning of the match. The ball takes cuts as soon as it gets on the cracky black spots of the pitch. So, spinners and cutters bowlers are crucial in this venue. The middle order and lower order batters find it difficult to score runs on this pitch, while the spinners can turn the game in the death overs. The average run on this pitch is 140-160 runs. The boundaries of this ground are 76m front, and leg/off boundaries are 62-64m, so it will be convenient for the batsmen to use these shorter boundaries for the runs.
The weather will be sunny on the 10th match of the VIVO IPL 2021.

What is the pitch report?
The pitch has hosted 2 IPL matches this season. It is a dry pitch with wet black soil patches where spinners and cutters-bowlers will get ease to bowl as the ball will swirl; once it bounces on these black spits of soil; that’s why Harshal Patel took five wickets in the previous match of this season. The batting is accessible on this pitch in the 1st inning, but the 2nd inning will be a boon for spinners as the front boundary is distant and long, so the batsmen will try to shuffle score boundaries and sixes through offside strikes.
Out of the last ten matches on this pitch, the batting first team won 5, and the chasing team also won 5 games. The pacers took 50 wickets(30 wickets in 2nd and 20 wickets in 1st innings), and spinners took 59 wickets (26 wickets in 2nd and 33 wickets in 1st inning). The average score is 140-160 on this venue.
