Pitch Report:

Narendra Modi Stadium

Historically, this wicket generally gives good support to the batsmen with pace bowlers getting some movement in the initial overs. Overall wicket should be neutral with batsmen getting a somewhat extra advantage. You can expect scores in the range of 170-190. The chasing team has won 4 of the last 7 matches at this ground. The chasing team will find it easier to bat in the presence of due factor.

Balls Per Dismissals for Pacers: 23.8 

Balls Per Dismissals for Spinners: 28.7

Note:  Surprisingly a 2 paced wicket was used in the first match. A fresh wicket is expected to be used in this game so most probably pacers will get some movement in the initial overs however batsmen should find it easy to score after 4-5 overs.

RCB: 171/5, DC: 170/4 (Pace 7, Spin: 2)
