AUS vs SA Pitch Report: There will be a clash between Australia and South Africa in the 10th match of the World Cup 2023. This match will be played at ‘Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium’ in Lucknow. After IPL 2023, this pitch has been prepared afresh. In such a situation, what will be the mood of this mystery pitch, it will become clear to a great extent during the match itself.
This has been the mood of Lucknow’s pitch till now
After the India-New Zealand match held in January 2023, the pitch curator of Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow was removed. BCCI had taken this action due to poor pitch preparation. After this, this pitch remained in controversies throughout IPL 2023. This was considered the worst pitch in the entire IPL. Due to uneven bounce and pace on this pitch, it was difficult for the batsmen to score one run each.
A total of four ODI matches have been played on this ground so far. Here the highest score of the team batting first has been 253. In these matches, fast and spin bowlers have got equal success and batting has not been easy. Now that the pitch has been prepared afresh after IPL 2023, it is possible that the pitch can provide some help to the bowlers as well as the batsmen. However, there is little possibility of the mood of this pitch changing much. Australian captain Pat Cummins says that fast bowlers can get good pace and bounce on this pitch.
How will be the weather in Lucknow today?
Today will be a hot day in Lucknow. Day temperature can reach 35 degrees. It will fall to 28 degrees in the evening. The weather will be completely clear i.e. there is no chance of rain during the match.
IND vs PAK: Not only the stadium, entire Ahmedabad will be made a cantonment, along with bomb disposal and anti-drone units, NSG and RAF will also be deployed.
