The Village Stadium pitch report Dublin 2nd T20I
The Malahide Stadium in Dublin is a brilliant track to bat on, and it was proved in the last match by the Indian Cricket Team. This ground’s pitch is a flat one, and there is an even bounce on the track. Moreover, the boundaries at this ground are quite small as well, and the batters can take full advantage of it.
It is a good wicket to bat on, but there is a visible amount of swing in the initial overs of the match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was able to swing the ball in the initial overs of the game. Due to overcast conditions and fresh wickets, the pacers will be threatening with the hard ball. If the batters can survive the initial phase, they will be able to play their shots.
Thank you to our fans in Ireland and across the UK for turning out in large numbers and cheering for #TeamIndia. 👏🏾👏🏾
