Now we will see the toss scenario in the match means if MI wins the toss then what would be more beneficial for them in the first innings bowling or batting and what can increase their chances of winning.
So far 102 IPL matches have been played on this pitch, out of which the team batting in the first innings has won 48 matches and the team bowling in the first innings has won 54 matches.
So looking at this MI should get bowling done in first innings and batting in second innings would be better. And red soil is used on this pitch, due to which this pitch is hard and due to which pacers like Cameron Green, Jason Behrendorff, Jofra Archer, Arjun Tendulkar, Riley Meredith, Akash Madhwal, Arshad Khan will get bounce in their ball, so that they can easily take wickets of batsmen with their bowling. By the way here spinners like Piyush Chawla, Kumar Kartikeya, Hrithik Shokeen, Nehal Wadhera, Raghav Goyal do not get much help on this pitch.
In this pitch, the team batting in the second innings has a heavy upper hand because after some time due to dew, the pacer finds it difficult to grip the ball, due to which he has difficulty in taking wickets and the team batting in the second innings easily chases big scores.
And the average score of the team bowling in the first innings has been 180 runs. And tell that in the last 8 matches the spinner has taken 23 wickets and the pacer has taken the total 60 wickets.
Now if we talk about what can happen if MI is forced to bat in the first innings. First of all, let us tell you that due to the use of red soil, this pitch has always proved to be helpful for the batter, due to which most of the matches here are high scoring. This means that this pitch is high scoring. By the way, due to the short boundary and quick outfield here, batsmen like Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Cameron Green, Tim David will get more help.
So overall, this pitch is a batting pitch and the right place for the batter. So the option of getting batting done in the first innings can also prove to be good. And the average score of the team batting in the first innings is 168 runs. And the highest score on this pitch is 235 runs.
But now if we see overall then it would be more beneficial for MI to bowl in the first innings.
Red soil is used in this pitch, due to which this pitch has always proved to be more helpful for the batter, due to which most of the matches here are high scoring. This means this pitch is a high scoring pitch.
By the way, due to the short boundary and quick outfield here, the batsman gets more help. So overall, this pitch is a batting pitch and believe that this pitch is the best place for batting.
Due to the use of red soil here, this pitch is hard and due to which the pacer gets bounce in his ball. That is, the pacer can take the wicket of the batsman with his bowling.
But here the ball comes very smoothly on the bat, so the bowler has to pay attention to this as well. The spinner doesn’t get that much help on this pitch.
On this pitch, the team batting in the second innings has a heavy upper hand because after some time due to dew, the pacer finds it difficult to grip the ball.
Because of which the team batting in the second inning chases big scores very easily.
