- Dew can spoil the game of a team in Mohali
- Three matches of the series will be held on 20, 23 and 25 September
- Bouncy pitch can be found in terms of preparations for the World Cup
IND vs AUS Mohali T20I Pitch Report: The first match of the three-match T20 series between India and Australia will be played at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali. Before the World Cup, this series is considered very important for both the teams. Both the teams will look to win the first match here with the intention of taking the lead in the series. Meanwhile, it becomes necessary to know how the Mohali pitch is and with what combination the teams can go.
If we look at the preparations in terms of the upcoming World Cup and in terms of preparations, then it will certainly be the endeavor of the pitch curators to give bouncy pitches in this series and in the upcoming South Africa series. This is because Australian pitches are very fast and bouncy. So for the preparations in the upcoming 6 T20 matches, Team India can get a bouncy surface so that the fast bowlers can prepare themselves well. The Mohali pitch is already considered the fastest among all the pitches in India.
What is pitch report?
If we talk about the pitch report of PCA Stadium, then this surface is one of the fastest grounds in India. There is bounce here, due to which the fast bowlers can also get help. At the same time, the T20 match will be played in the night, so the pacers of the team bowling first can get help in the opening over. In the initial overs, the team batting first may have to be troubled by the moving balls. But as the match progresses here, the pitch becomes favorable for the batsmen. That is, the team batting later can get the advantage.
Dew will spoil the game!
Also, it is often seen at the PCA Stadium in Mohali that dew often spoils the game of teams. In such a situation, winning the toss, the team which bowls first will be helped to bat later and the team bowling in the second innings can face problems. Due to the dew, the ball will slip from the hands of the bowlers and the bowlers may have to face problems. This will directly benefit the batsmen. The match will start at 7 pm and it has to be seen at what time the dew starts falling. On this pitch, the spinners may have to struggle against the pacers.
