Pitch Report:

Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah

Pitch is expected to be batting friendly in the first half of the tournament. This wicket has short boundaries so six hitting will be easy. In the last season this wicket was highly batting friendly in the first 3-4 games but later on it slowed down. You can expect scores in the vicinity of 190.

Note: In the last game batting was easy on this ground but some balls were sticking especially after the first 10 overs of both the innings.

RCB: 156/6, CSK: 157/4 (Pace: 8, Spin: 4)
