Is Wankhede Stadium Mumbai batting or bowling pitch?

In the previous game, the pitch was favorable for batters as evidenced by PBKS’ Sam Curran and Harpreet Bhatia and MI’s Cameron green & Suryakumar Yadav scoring runs at will and at a brisk pace. The size of the ground also allows batsmen to play their shots freely, creating a balanced competition in the batting department. While the pitch may not offer much support for seam bowlers, spinners can make use of the dry red soil, especially during the middle overs. All things considered, it can be said that the pitch is suitable for batting and offers some opportunities for spin bowlers.
