Take a look at the detailed pitch report ahead of the IPL match no. 57 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants

The Rajiv Gandhi Stadium is getting ready to host the match between their ‘Orange Army’ as Sunrisers Hyderabad is all set to play Lucknow Super Giants. Both teams are coming here after facing a defeat. SRH, whose batters were thriving in the first half of the IPL, are now struggling. On the other hand, LSG is also not having a good outing in the last few games.

Looking at the IPL 2024 points table, SRH is at the 4th spot after 6 games with 12 points, whereas LSG, after their last game against KKR where they were defeated by 98 runs, slipped to 6th. Ahead of the SRH vs LSG match, let’s take a detailed look at the pitch report for the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.

SRH vs LSG: Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch of Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi Stadium has so far favored the batters. However, on some occasions, it has also supported the bowlers. Taking the examples of the last few games, the bowl is surely getting some movements. In the match against RCB and SRH, the ball was getting stuck in the pitch and coming a bit slowly to the bat. But looking at the SRH scenario, they really look to get some more points. By which they can confirm their berth in the playoffs.

Since batting is the strong suit of Hyderabad, the team will try to set big scores. If they win the toss, they might choose to bat first and defeat Lucknow by runs. SRH’s weak point in the last few games was witnessed while they were chasing. The pitch, which helps the bowlers, makes the explosive batters of Hyderabad start struggling. So, it will be a tricky situation for them if they lose the toss and LSG sends them to bowl first.
