Wankhede Stadium pitch report CSK vs GT
Wankhede Stadium has always been a paradise for the batters. The red soil surface at the Wankhede Stadium provides an even bounce that allows the batters to play their shots freely. There is no unevenness on the track that does not get slowed down in the 2nd half of the match as well.
A total of 16 games have been played in IPL 2022 so far at the Wankhede Stadium, where the average 1st innings score has been 168 runs. Out of 16 games, nine games have been won by the chasing teams. The boundaries of this ground are not that large, and the batters can easily clear the boundary ropes.

The pacers get a visible amount of swing in the initial overs at the Wankhede Stadium. In the last game between Chennai and Mumbai, the pacers of Mumbai Indians were on fire. Chennai Super Kings were bundled out for just 97 runs in the last game. Even Mumbai Indians lost five wickets in the chase.
Being a day game, the dew factor won’t play any kind of impact in this game and batting first won’t be a bad option here. Even the pacers won’t get swing in the initial overs. A high scoring game can be on the cards.
