KKR vs. PBKS Pitch Report
The Wankhede ground is perfect for hitting, and then once the batters get relaxed at the wicket, predict a run-fest. In the championship’s last two matches, the teams batting first were unable to put up a difficult total mostly on board, which also became insufficient when defending.
While teams don’t hesitate to bat first during afternoon games, due to dew’s combination at this location, this is not the case during nighttime games. As a result, if a captain wins the toss, they should select to bowl first.
