In this article, we’re diving into the details of Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad’s pitch report, ODI stats and records, as well as Team India’s track record at this iconic venue. Team India will play only single match here against India.
ICC World Cup 2023: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad Pitch Report
In ODI matches at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the pitches are generally great for batting. They are flat and provide good bounce, which helps batsmen hit the ball well and score a lot of runs.
Early in the game, especially in day-night matches, bowlers may get a bit of help with the swing and seam movement, but as the match goes on, the pitch becomes even better for batting. Spinners also play a role later in the game when the ball starts to turn more.
So, in simple terms, Narendra Modi Stadium’s pitch for ODI matches is usually good for batsmen, but bowlers can also find opportunities to make an impact, making the matches exciting to watch.
Pace vs Spin at this Venue (In Last 3 Matches at New Stadium)
Seamers at this venue: Average 21.30, Economy Rate 4.38, Wickets 33 = 64.7%
Spinners at this venue: Average 27.44, Economy Rate 5.20, Wickets 18 = 35.29%
Analysis: The new stadium hasn’t hosted many ODIs, and the few it did saw relatively low scores. In the IPL, bowlers using the new ball have experienced good movement and bounce at this venue. However, with multiple pitches to choose from, it’s challenging to anticipate the exact type of pitch conditions that will prevail on any given day.
