On Saturday, April 8, at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, the 11th match of the IPL 2023 Rajasthan Royals will be playing (RR) against Delhi Capitals (DC). Both teams have lost their last game. In their first game, RR got out to a fast start. However, despite Jurel and Hetmyer’s heroics, they lost their most recent game to Punjab. On the other hand, DC has lost two games in a row and are yet to find their initial win of this season.
The Punjab Kings demonstrated in the opening match at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium that precise bowling could win games despite the dew effect. Since this game will take place in the afternoon, dew might not play a significant influence. The pitch will provide a lot of assistance to the batters in both innings, which might lead to a high-scoring game. In the last five T20 matches played here, the first innings score has averaged 187 runs.
The pitch that’s been used today was used for the India-South Africa T20I where 450+ runs were scored. It’s the centre pitch, 65m on both sides and longer straight boundaries. The pitch is brilliant, it might not be as good a wicket to bat on though, it’s darker which means a bit more moisture, there are indentations and ridges which run parallel to each other because of the process of scarification, which has ensured a few marks. It’s still a very good pitch to bat, but it might help the spinners to get some grip. batting first might be the way to go about today, said Deep Dasgupta, in his pitch report.
