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.
