Ekana Stadium Pitch Report

Scoring runs at Ekana Cricket Stadium remains one of the toughest challenges for teams. The black soil used on this pitch makes things worse for batters. The ball grips the surface, leading to a low bounce, making it hard for batters to play their shots freely. Not just spinners but pacers also may get success, especially if they have slower-ball variations in their arsenal.

As the sample size is still insufficient to paint a clear picture, in the IPL, 13 matches have been played at this ground. Teams batting first have won almost 50% of the games, and the same scene applies to teams batting second. Also, one match ended with no result. Still Considering the surface and the possibility of moisture, particularly in the second innings, batting second might be the better option
