IND vs. SL: The second match of the three match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka will be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday. This match will start at 13:30 Indian time. There will be a draw at 1 o’clock. Toss can become the boss of this match and we say it because the numbers here are the witnesses. A total of 32 games have been played in this field so far, in which the role of the draw has been very important. On the other hand, speaking of the court here, you might be surprised to see the average score. The way India scored a mammoth score of 373 in Guwahati, might not be seen here.

Launch Boss Banega!

The average score in the first innings at Eden Gardens is 245 and in the second innings, only 206 runs are scored on average. On the other hand, if we talk about the statistics of the draw, then the team that bats first has won 19 out of 32 times on this ground. At the same time, the first bowling team has won 12 times. A match has been inconclusive for this reason. In such a situation, these figures may have an impact on the second ODI between India and Sri Lanka and the role of the draw may be important.

How is the atmosphere on the Eden Gardens course?

If we talk about the pitch of the historic Eden Gardens, both the batsmen and the bowlers have been helped here. Fast pitchers can be effective here early innings. At the same time, the spinners can also be effective at half time. In the second innings, the dew may help batsmen and bowlers may find it difficult to catch the ball. The same was seen in Guwahati too. In this context, the role of the launch also becomes important. Speaking of recent years, the Eden Gardens field has been useful for hitters. India also scored over 400 here.
