Eden Gardens Pitch Report: Big runs coming? What color pitch will show in LSG vs KKR game

Humidity will play a role in this hot weather in Kolkata, making batting difficult in the first innings

LSG vs KKR Pitch Report : Traditionally, it is a batting paradise, especially in T20 cricket. Eden Pitch typically provides a batting-friendly track, a flat surface with good amount of bounce, facilitating strokeplay.

Although it’s a high-scoring surface, but we can anticipate that spinners will also receive some assistance. As we saw in the past, the pitch typically slows down, providing significant assistance to spinners especially during the middle overs. In the last 87 IPL encounters, teams batting first won 36 times, while teams batting second won 51 times.
