KKR vs RR Pitch Report

The Eden Gardens wicket has proved to be batting friendly with teams easily scoring runs in the surface. Batting under lights has not presented any issues in the two games played at Eden Gardens. Under lights, it’s a good batting wicket, but with a little bit of strategic thinking, spinners should be able to get some grip off the wicket. The humidity can be a factor although it is not expected to impact as much because of the KKR vs RR match being a night game.
