Furthermore, particularly in games that are played in the evening, the game may be greatly impacted by a substantial amount of dew present in the second innings. Because batters can play their shots freely and without interference, the track is widely known as a batting paradise. The team winning the toss can be expected to bat first and pile the pressure on the chasing team.
