Adelaide Oval pitch report

Usually this pitch favours the batters because of its unusual dimensions. The pitch is short in left and right sides while the straight boundary is well over 80 metres.

Adelaide pitch favours batsmen and bowlers depending on their skill set and game making ability. Last T20 match was played here between India and England in which England chased down the score of 170 runs in less that 17 overs without losing any wickets.

Anything over 180 runs will be sufficient for the team batting first but if it’s under 170, the chasing side will definitely favour its chances of winning the game.
