Match 31: PBKS vs LSG Pitch and Weather Report

Pitch Report

The most recent match played at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium revealed that the pitch there is favourable for batsmen due to its good bounce and speed, making it advantageous for them. Additionally, it is recognised that fast bowlers can also benefit from the pitch, particularly during the first few overs, as the ball tends to spin and offer some swing and bounce. However, as the game continues, the field becomes flatter, which makes it simpler for batsmen to score runs.

  • Initial Ball Movement (1st Inning): High chance
  • Initial Spin Movement(1st Inning): Chances of Turn on Pitch
  • Middle Over: Scoring pitch
  • 2nd Inning Pitch Behaviour: Advantage for batsman 
  • Due factor: Less chance of Due
  • Pitch Nature: Dry Pitch

Despite its reputation for being a pitch that favours batsmen, it can also offer benefits to bowlers. In evening matches, there is a possibility of early seam and swing movements with the ball, which can be advantageous for bowlers. Additionally, spin bowlers tend to find the pitch helpful in the later stage of the game.

Weather Report

As per the weather report for April 28th, 2023, Mohali is expected to experience a temperature of 34℃, with a wind speed of 11km/h and a humidity level of 27%. The high temperature has resulted in a solid and even pitch that typically favours batsmen, making it easy for them to score boundaries. However, there is a chance of some seam and swing movements from the ball in the early stages of the game, which can benefit both the batsmen and the bowlers. Nonetheless, the outcome of the match may be influenced by the prevailing weather and pitch conditions.
