Gujarat-Mumbai will clash in Qualifier-2, see pitch report of Narendra Modi Stadium
There is no doubt that it will not be easy for Mumbai to beat Hardik Pandya’s team in Ahmedabad. However, the manner in which Mumbai Indians have played in the last few matches has now increased their chances of becoming champions. Despite this, table topper Gujarat has many match winners who will give tough competition to Mumbai.
Pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium
The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium is considered batsmen friendly. There will be a completely opposite atmosphere from the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. If there is pace and bounce for fast bowlers, then the outfield will also be fast. Spinners won’t be of much help in this stadium of one lakh people, but spinners like Rashid Khan and Piyush Chawla are experts in taking wickets on any ground. However, here if it happens on a red clay pitch then spinners can get help. The boundary is a bit bigger, so it may be that sixes are not seen as much.
