PBKS vs DC : Pitch Report

The pitch at HPCA Stadium is supportive of seamers due to its location. With a new ball, fast bowlers can wreck havoc on batters with their swing and variations. Batters need to spend some time on the wicket before they start playing big shots. Therefore, the match is expected to be a less scoring one as bowlers have the dominant role.

Dew will play a key role here.

Any score above 160 could be a defendable one.

So far, a total of 9 IPL matches have been played on this pitch, out of which 5 have been won by the team batting first whereas 4 by the chasers.

The captain winning the toss should field first.
