The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad is all set to host its third game of IPL 2023 to be played between the hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians. Both teams had a slow start to their campaign as they lost their opening two games of the competition. However, with two back-to-back wins, both sides have found their mojo and this promises to be a scintillating contest.
Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium Hyderabad Pitch Report
The Rajiv Gandhi Stadium pitch in Hyderabad is known for its batting-friendly nature, providing ample opportunities for batsmen to score runs. The pitch has a hard, dry surface with good bounce, making it ideal for stroke-making. The boundaries at the stadium are relatively short, which can make it challenging for bowlers to contain the run-scoring rate.
However, spinners may find some assistance from the surface, especially in the latter stages of the innings, as the pitch tends to slow down and offer some turn. The team winning the toss is likely to opt to field first and chase down a target since it is a high-scoring ground, and a score of around 170 runs would be considered par.
|Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium||Stats|
|Number of wins batting first||28|
|Number of wins batting second||38|
|Average First Innings score||158.35|
|Average powerplay Score||46|

In the SRH vs MI match, both teams will look to make the most of the batting-friendly conditions to put up a formidable total and put pressure on the opposition. The team with a better batting display and a well-thought-out bowling plan that can counter the pitch’s challenges is likely to come out on top.

Is Rajiv Gandhi Stadium Hyderabad batting or bowling pitch?
So far, two matches have been played at this venue in this season and we saw assistance to both batters and bowlers. The first game played here was between RR and SRH that saw Royals scoring 203 for 5 in the first innings and in reply SRH could only manage 131-8. In the next match played here, PBKS batted first and could only manage 143 on the board for the loss of 9 wickets. The slowness of the pitch helped the swing bowlers and spinners to get the better of PBKS batters. Leggy Mayank Markande scalped a 4-fer and was declared Man of the Match. Once again, we can expect a slow wicket.
