GG vs MT: Pitch Report
The game will be held at the JSCA International Stadium. Over the years, the venue has received poor ratings. Spinners frequently get the surface to work in their favour. It is normally dry, and spinners have some traction. The Pacers may have to rely on their versatility. Slower ones and cutters are introduced. To begin the competition, fans may expect a low-scoring game at the location.
