Visakhapatnam Pitch gets batting friendly makeover: What to expect for DC vs KKR clash?

With the pitch expected to remain on the batting-friendly side, both DC and KKR will be looking to capitalize on this opportunity.

The upcoming IPL encounter between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam promises to be a high-scoring affair. Recent pitch behavior suggests a significant shift from the traditional spin-friendly surface to one that favors batters.

Historically, the Visakhapatnam pitch has been known to assist spinners and offer limited assistance to pacers. However, during DC’s previous match against CSK at this venue, a stark contrast emerged.

The pitch surprisingly favored fast bowlers, with nine out of eleven wickets falling prey to their pace attacks.

Transformation into Batting Paradise

The past slow and low-scoring track at Vizag seems like a distant memory. The recent match between DC and CSK witnessed a run-fest, with batsmen from both sides enjoying a batting-friendly paradise. Big names like Rishabh Pant, David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, and even MS Dhoni thrived on the pitch, showcasing its batting dominance.

Repeat Performance Expected for DC vs KKR

Considering the trend of the previous match, the upcoming DC vs KKR encounter is likely to follow a similar pattern. The pitch is expected to remain good for stroke-making, with batsmen once again taking center stage. Bowlers might find it challenging to restrict the flow of runs, making it a potential high-scoring encounter.
