Brabourne Stadium pitch batting or bowling
The pitch at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai has been heaven for the batters in this season of the Indian Premier League. There is a red soil surface at the Wankhede Stadium which provides an even bounce for batters to play their shots. The boundaries are also not huge at the venue.
A total of 13 games have been played this season at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium. Out of 13 games, seven games have been won by the chasing teams. The average 1st innings batting score at this ground has been 176 runs. RCB bundled out for just 68 runs in one match, but this pitch has been consistently good for batting this season.
This is a night game, so the bowlers can have a tough time in the presence of dew. So, we can expect yet another high-scoring encounter.
