Pitch and Weather Condition/Report:
The temperature during the match time would start from 34 degree Celsius and would come down to 31 degree Celsius by the end. The humidity would be on the lower side as well. There will be a bit of cloud cover, but that’s far from threatening. Dew is not expected to play a part.
The pitch has been a good one for batting, but the bowlers have also had their say. Since the first match between RR and KXIP, all three games were won by the team, batting second. Hence, the opponents may want to field first after winning the toss. Nevertheless, the track may favour the bowlers a bit more, bearing in mind that dew won’t be coming to the fore.
