Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium Pitch Report:
The pitch at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is expected to favour bowlers, especially pacers who can exploit some early seam and swing. However, as the batters settle in, it should become more conducive for scoring substantial runs. The spacious boundaries will make it easier for the batters to rotate strike. Hence, the captain winning the toss is likely to opt for fielding first.
