Pitch Report:

M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

This match will be a day night test and will be played by Pink Ball. (Pink Ball generally swings more in the first 20-25 overs and after that it softens up and batting becomes easy. However it again start swinging under the lights mostly due to moisture. )

The wicket is looking on the drier side so spinners will get more help from the surface however Pacers will have always an upper hand with the new ball.

One interesting Fact:

In the first pink ball Test (Kolkata), Indian spinners failed to take any wicket. In the next one (Ahmedabad), all of Axar, Ashwin and Washington Sundar took 19 of the 20 wickets to fall.
