RR vs GT Pitch Report: Teams should bat or bowl first on balanced surface of Sawai Mansingh Stadium?

Ahead of the unbeaten Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Gujarat Titans (GT), let us discuss Sawai Mansingh Stadium pitch report.

Rajasthan Royals will return to their home ground to face Gujarat Titans on Wednesday, aiming to extend their unbeaten streak in the Indian Premier League (IPL). RR currently tops the table with four wins out of four matches. Gujarat is placed seventh with two wins and three losses.

RR vs GT  Pitch Report 

The pitch at Jaipur has proven to be balanced for both batting and bowling in the current season. Across the three matches held at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium so far, teams have consistently scored over 180 runs each match. In one instance, the chasing team successfully achieved the target, while the Royals defended scores of 185 and 193 runs on two occasions.

The captain who wins the toss should choose to bowl first, as it would be better to chase on this surface. The dew will also play a role, making the chase easier. Stats also suggest that the team that has batted second has won more times than the team batting first. In 55 matches at the stadium, 20 matches were won by the team batting first, while 35 were won by the team chasing.
