The deciding match of the 3-game T20 series being played between India and New Zealand will be played on February 1 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Despite the fact that the Indian team won the second match of the series with 1 ball remaining, the field of this match garnered the most headlines. The second match was played in Lucknow where the Kiwi team was able to score just 99 runs while batting first. While chasing the goal, the Indian team also had to fight hard and they were able to finish the match in 19.5 overs. In such a situation, it will surely raise questions in everyone’s minds about the pitch of the decisive match. Meanwhile, the pitch curator of Narendra Modi Stadium has said what the winning score of the match there will be.
We tell you that so far a total of 5 games have been played in the Ahmedabad stadium, in which the team that bats first has won 2 times while the team that chases the goal has won 3 times. On the other hand, if we talk about the average score of this wicket, around 174 runs have been seen during the first innings.
Speaking of the Ahmedabad pitch, according to the pitch curator here, if the first-batting team scores 170 to 175 on this pitch, it may turn out to be a much better target. While batting second, the dew can also play a huge role.
At the same time, the dew can also show its effect during the second batting, so the team that wins the toss would like to pursue the goal. The Indian team played their last T20 match at this ground against England in the year 2021 and in that match, the Indian team won by 36 runs.
Let us tell you that regarding the pitch of the last T20 match played in Lucknow, Indian team captain Hardik Pandya also called it a shock. In that game, not a single batter from both teams could hit a six.
