PBKS vs RCB IPL 2023: Mohali Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, Punjab is well-known for its green grass pitch that provides significant support to the fast bowlers. This often results in batsmen taking a cautious approach in the early stages of the game. However, the stadium’s pitch is also famous for its batting-friendly wickets, especially in T20 formats. Due to its bounce and pace, the surface enables high-scoring games. While the pitch may provide some initial assistance to fast bowlers, it flattens out as the game progresses, making it easier for batters to score runs.

So far two games have been played at this venue in this edition of Tata IPL. The first game between Punjab Kings and KKR was a high scoring affair, but GT vs PBKS was a low scoring one. Pacers enjoy bowling on this wicket as there is always a tinch of greenery which makes Mohali a pace friendly wicket.
