The Mohali Cricket Stadium’s pitch is renowned for its cracky surface, providing reliable spin and turn. However, the stadium’s small dimensions, with an average boundary length of just 75 meters, mean that batsmen can easily hit sixes and fours. Consequently, this pitch is considered a batting-friendly surface for the PBKS vs KKR Prediction.
