Pitch Report

The Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow offers favorable conditions for bowlers, especially spinners. Batsmen will need to work with patience and gradually build their innings, focusing on a solid start. As a result, the captain who wins the toss might find it advantageous to opt for bowling first on this pitch.

Toss Prediction

Watching teams consistently opt for bowling first in this tournament has been quite fascinating. Ekana’s pitch conditions and the early overs make it challenging to set a substantial score. Plus, the dew factor adds another element to consider. So, it’s no surprise that the side winning the toss usually opts to bowl first.

What’s even more interesting is that the matches have been evenly split between teams batting first and teams chasing, with each side winning two matches. It’s quite remarkable that the toss hasn’t played a significant role, as teams, regardless of winning or losing it. This pitch offers favorable conditions for bowlers, especially spinners. Batsmen will need to exercise patience and gradually build their innings, focusing on a solid start. We predict that the team winning the toss might choose to bowl first.
