India vs Afghanistan 3rd T20I : Pitch Report

Because of the flat pitches and tiny square boundaries, the ground is renowned as a batter’s paradise; yet, in a recent match, India defeated Australia by defending a total of 160, with both sides’ slow bowlers doing well. With an average first-inning total of 141, the pursuing teams hold a 5-3 lead over the batting teams in the nine T20I played at this stadium. Given that the game is being played in the winter, dew may also be an issue, albeit it might come a little later than at the other locations.
