MI vs DC Pitch Report: What’s cooking at the Wankhede Stadium this time?

Flat surface with a good amount of bounce and carry, there is a chance that we will witness a high-scoring match

MI vs DC Pitch Report: Always favored for batting, Wankhede Stadium has a proven record of witnessing high-scoring encounters so far.

Although the red soil on the Wankhede pitch may bring a twist as it provides a spin-friendly surface, in the last game, MI was shattered by RR star leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal at this historic stadium. Moreover, the MI vs DC match will be played on Sunday afternoon, which clearly indicates that there is a high chance we will see a pinch of spin once again.

MI vs DC Pitch Report: As Usual Batting Surface or a Rank Turner

In 110 IPL matches till date, as mentioned earlier, Wankhede usually witnesses high scores. Having a flat surface with a good amount of bounce and carry helps the batters, as they can play shots freely.

Also, Wankhede has one of the smaller cricket grounds with short square boundaries of 64 to 68 meters and also has straight boundaries of 68 to 72 meters, giving the batter a free hand to attack the bowlers.

The team batting first has won 50 times, while the chasing sides have won on 60 occasions.

The average first innings score of 169 gives us the full picture of how deadly batters can be. Speaking of the highest total to date, it is 235 runs, which RCB made in 2015 against MI.

Although the chasing team has won more matches but considering the batting-friendly cover and the short boundaries at Wankhede Stadium, the side that wins the toss will likely opt to bat first.
