The final match of the five-match T20 series between India and Australia will be played in Bengaluru. Both teams will lock horns today (December 3) at 7pm here at the KM Chinnaswamy Stadium. Just as it rained runs in the last four games of this series, there may be more runs in today’s game.
In fact, this ground has been very helpful for the batsmen in recent years. The playing field is flat so the ball hits the racket easily. The boundaries are also small, which is why the batsmen are not afraid to hit sixes. Here it is common to score two hundred in T20. Reaching 200 points on this pitch hasn’t proven to be too difficult.
The mood on the pitch will be similar in today’s game. During the game the sky is cloudy and the weather is humid. There is an opportunity to get help from the fast bowlers, but due to the dew, that help is useless. This means it is certain that there will be heavy runs in the game. In the last 14 IPL matches at this ground, the team batting first has exceeded the score of 180 nine times. Here at the 2023 World Cup there will also be foursomes and sixsomes. There will be a similar scene in today’s game.
So far, eight T20 International matches have been played at this ground. One of these games was unsuccessful. In the seven games played here, the chasing team was more successful. The team that beat later had success in five games. In the two games in which the team batting first won, a win was achieved by just one run. Overall, it can be said that hitting later on this surface is a guarantee of victory.
The Indian team has an unassailable lead of 3-1 in this five-match T20 series. This means she has already won this series. Team India is expected to have the upper hand in today’s match too.
