Is Arun Jaitley Stadium Delhi batting or bowling pitch?
The wicket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium always tends to be a tricky one as it produces something for both seamers and spinners. The ball grips a bit especially in the second innings and this was something evident in the last match played at this venue between MI and DC. Despite chasing a modest total, MI found it difficult to get the better of the wicket as it was slowing down. Once again expect a wicket that grips a bit and makes it difficult for the batters to score freely.
