Venue Info and Stats
The IS Bindra Stadium is renowned for its batting-friendly pitch, which usually offers ample assistance to stroke makers and big hitters. The surface tends to favour the team batting first, as the pitch slows down and becomes more challenging to score on as the match progresses. Additionally, the dew factor in the evening matches can make it difficult for bowlers to grip the ball, giving the chasing team a slight advantage.
