The Oval Pitch Report, IND vs AUS: The wait is nearly over as India and Australia are all set to square off in the 2023 World Test Championship Final, which will begin on June 7. The summit match, which will take place at The Oval in London, is anticipated to be a thrilling contest between the top two Test cricket sides. Check out the Kennington Oval Stadium’s full pitch report, statistics, and records below.
For all it’s worth, India enjoy a strong recent record versus Australia. They have won all four Test series since 2017—two at home and two away—by identical 2-1 scores, the most recent of which occurred this past March. Again, beyond the feel-good factor, those outcomes won’t really mean much, especially because this match will take place on neutral ground even if the bulk of the crowd will be supporting Rohit’s boys.
The Kennington Oval holds the record for hosting the most test matches. There is still enough for the bowlers to enjoy even if it is a high-scoring venue. It’s hard to anticipate whether the ball or the bat will win since England’s weather is always shifting and unpredictable. In other words, the pitch provides assistance to both bowlers and batters. In that situation, the outcome of the toss is crucial.
Due to the help the spinners receive on the final two days of the match because of the dryness, as has been observed in the past, the majority of teams opt to bat first. The batters had it tough surviving the sharp bend. Due to the lack of a green surface, which is often prevalent in the other England stadiums, fast bowlers’ records here haven’t been very excellent.
