World Cup 2023 Semi Final: RSA vs AUS Pitch Report
Eden Gardens pitch is a tad bit slower than average. It slows down after that, so it’s not as effective while hitting. Spinners will be useful at that point since they will have lots of grip and spin off the surface. The ball won’t come on readily to the bat, so seamers will need to bowl a lot of cutters in the last overs. It will be difficult to bat second here because the surface will get harder to bat on and the ball will travel about under the lights.
