The 10th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) will be played on Friday. This match will clash between Lucknow Super Giants and Sunrisers Hyderabad (LSG vs SRH) on 7th April. Both teams will clash at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow from 7:30 pm in this match. But amid all this, let us know how the Ekana Cricket Stadium Pitch Report pitch.
In IPL 2023, Lucknow Super Giants got off to a great start as the team defeated Delhi Capitals in their first match. While Sunrisers Hyderabad had to face defeat against Rajasthan in their first league match.
In this stadium, the team prefers to bat after winning the toss because, looking at the record so far, the team batting first in T20 scores many runs against the other team. This pitch is considered good for the batsmen, but the bowlers get a lot of help as the game progresses.
12 international matches, including 6 T20Is, have been played at Ekana Cricket Stadium. The first innings average on the Lucknow pitch was 160 in the six matches played here before the first IPL match. The last match changed the average score. Batting first on their home ground, LSG scored 193 runs. In such a situation, the team that has batted first here has won most of the time.
Black soil has been used on the pitch of Ekana Cricket Stadium. This helps the fast bowlers more. Spinners also get help during the middle overs. Ravi Bishnoi has shown this in the first match as well. Dew plays an important role in the second innings. Bowling becomes difficult. It is safe to bat first after winning the toss in such a situation.
