The red clay pitch of Wankhede Stadium is well known for batting. Due to the good bounce here, the ball hits the bat well, which the batsmen take advantage of. The boundaries of this ground are very small, so it is much easier for the batsmen to send the ball outside the boundary. On the other hand, if we talk about bowling, the bowlers get good swing from the pitch in the initial overs, apart from this, the spinners also get a lot of help. But if compared, this pitch is more favorable for the batsmen.
The average first innings score in 20 T20 matches played at Wankhede before IPL 2022 has been 175. Teams like to chase on this ground. In such a situation, whichever team wins the toss can go bowling first.
