Delhi’s Arun Jaitley stadium, a bowler’s nightmare

Historically, the wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium were known for being slower and supporting slower bowlers and spinners as the game went. However, after the addition of freshly laid pitches made of black dirt, these wickets have shown signs of renewed vigour. The enhanced bounce that the black soil surfaces produce is known to favorably affect batters’ ability to score.

The dew that is anticipated to fall to the ground during the second half of the game is one important issue that teams will have to deal with. The fielding side can face difficulties as a result because it might get harder to handle the ball. However, in the previous match played at this location, South Africa scored the highest total ever in World Cups when batting first, indicating that the pitch may provide favorable circumstances for the hitters.
