PBKS vs GT IPL 2023: Mohali Cricket Stadium Pitch Report
The IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali will be hosting its second fixture of IPL 2023. The Stadium is known for its high-scoring surface, but the curators intentionally create a slow pitch that benefits batters after the opening overs. Despite T20 records at the venue, it appears that chasing on this ground is the way to go, with targets of 180 being considered unsafe to defend. As such, winning the toss and opting to bowl first could prove to be a smart choice for teams playing at Mohali during IPL 2023 matches. Take a look at the IPL records at this venue,
