Match Venue - DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai, India
KOL vs LKN Pitch Report
The red clay pitch of DY Patil Stadium proves to be very effective for fast bowlers. Because it provides them with good bounce which puts the batsmen in a lot of trouble. At the same time, this pitch is also helpful for the batsmen, because due to good bounce, the ball also comes well on the bat. If the batsman stays on the wicket with patience in the beginning, then he can play a big inning comfortably after that.
However, some previous matches of IPL 2022 have not been like this. The pitch has played very slow in the last few matches. Due to which it has become very difficult for the batsmen to score runs. The ball is now getting stuck a bit. Spinner bowlers are getting a lot of help on this pitch now. It is not so easy to score runs on this ground now. The score of 160-165 on this pitch also looks very big now. Due to the slow pitch, whoever wins the toss between KKR and LSG can bat first and put a decent total on the board. Because in IPL now it is finding it very difficult to chase at this venue.
