The Narendra Modi Stadium, renowned as the world’s largest cricket ground, is known for its batting-friendly nature, the pitch poses a unique challenge for bowlers. Seem-friendly conditions may influence the toss decision early in the match, potentially prompting the toss winner to opt for batting first.

This fixture marks the fourth match of the season at the Narendra Modi Stadium, with Gujarat securing two victories and suffering one defeat against Punjab Kings on April 4. With nearly two weeks since the last match at this venue, the pitch’s behaviour remains uncertain.

Highly contested game expected

The three matches held so far have seen first innings totals of 168, 162, and 199, indicating a slightly higher scoring trend in the initial innings. However, the impact of dew, particularly in favour of the team batting second, adds unpredictability to the surface conditions. Amidst this uncertainty, a cautious prediction leans towards a moderately high first innings score, with potential advantages for the team batting second due to dew factors.
