IND vs AUS Pitch Report 4th T20I

To date, the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium has seen just one international match. However, it has served as the venue for Indian Premier League matches, Champions League T20 games, and several matches in the Road Safety World Series.

While many Indian pitches typically favor batters, the track in Raipur doesn’t necessarily follow this trend. Batters might face challenges here as the pitch tends to slow down throughout the match. This condition makes it advantageous for spinners, while pacers need to rely on variations and slower deliveries and same is expected during India vs Australia 4th T20I.
