Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium is slow. Initially, it was a bowler-friendly track, but as time passed, the surface lost its sharpness as it slowed down. Only a few Test matches have concluded here. The pitch has a tendency to remain low and slow during the first half of the game, but it gradually improves for the batters as the game progresses. Despite the relatively larger boundary dimensions, Pacers have had more success at this venue than spinners, owing to the variations and judicious use of shorter deliveries. Batters will benefit from a new pitch with decent carry off the surface and a new ball. Considering the dew factor, teams generally prefer to bowl upon winning the toss.

The betting pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium is a great choice for TATA IPL T20 cricket matches. With 65 acres of land, it’s the only stadium in the world with 11 centre pitches on the main ground.

How To Analyse The Betting Pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium

  1. Type of pitch: There are various pitches, including dry, dusty, green, hard, seaming, turning, and flat. Understanding the pitch type helps make decisions about team composition and strategy.
  2. Grass coverage: The amount of grass on the surface affects the pace and bounce of the ball. A greener pitch with more grass generally offers more assistance to fast bowlers, while a drier pitch may be better for spinners.
  3. Surface moisture: Moisture levels impact the grip and carry of the ball, affecting spin, swing, and pace. A moist surface helps the ball to move around more, making it challenging for batters, while a dry surface can make it easier for the ball to come onto the bat.
  4. Cracks and wear: Cracks and worn-out areas can change the pace, bounce, and movement of the ball, making it difficult for batters to judge.
  5. Weather conditions: The weather, especially temperature, and humidity, has a significant impact on the pitch, altering its behaviour throughout the match. Understanding the weather forecast and how it will impact the pitch can help captains make strategic decisions.
