Visakhapatnam Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The pitches at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium have been batting friendly, but have also assisted quicker bowlers and the spinners as the match wears on like most wickets in the country. The expectation is for a spinning track to be prepared for the IND vs ENG Test, but the hosts will be careful after what happened in the first Test and in the Tests last year against Australia. However, the black soil wickets in Vizag may not offer as much bounce as Hyderabad.
