Thiruvananthapuram ∙ The Kariyavattam Sports Hub Stadium also aims to change its reputation as a non-batting pitch. So today’s game is on a new pitch that has not been used for international matches.
It is the fifth wicket in the middle of 11 pitches on the ground. Earlier first-class matches including the Ranji Trophy have been held here. He was also in favor of batting.
∙ Mandya soil
The basis of pitch chemistry is the clay used to make it. The pitches at Kariyavattam Sports Hub Stadium are shaped in different ways using soil from different locations. Today’s match is played on one of the 2 pitches which are made of clay brought from Mandya in Karnataka.
∙ India have won 3 out of 4 matches played at the Sports Hub Stadium so far
∙ Karivattam Sports Hub does not support stadium pitch calculations. Even when the curators say it is a batting ground, in one ODI and 3 T20s that have been held so far, the score has been above 150 only once.
∙ The team batting second has won three of the four international matches played at the stadium so far. So the throw will be crucial in today’s game. Snow will make bowling difficult in the second innings.
