KKR vs GT Match: Eden Gardens Stadium Pitch Report
Kolkata Knight Riders got their much-needed win in the last encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru by 21 runs. The Nitish Rana-led side will now head back to their home ground, i.e., Eden Gardens in a quest to secure their second win of the season at home.
Talking about the pitch, we have only seen high scoring contests in this season at the Eden Gardens. The last game played here between CSK and KKR saw the Super Kings scoring the highest ever total at the Eden, i.e., 235/4 in 20 overs. Therefore, expect a good day at the office for the batters. However, with the match being played in the afternoon, expect a dry wicket which might spin right from the first innings.

Is Eden Gardens batting or bowling pitch?
It has been a happy hunting ground for the batters in this season. Teams batting first have scored freely and the small boundaries especially behind the bowler is what the batters target. The surface is generally flat and the bounce on the wicket help the batters to play strokes with the line.
However, this match is going to be played in the afternoon which means spinners and slow bowlers will come into play as the wicket would be dry. Expect team batting first to score heavily but the team batting second may have to struggle with the slowness of the wicket.
