Pitch Report for KKR vs SRH

Kolkata’s pitch is a true paradise for batsmen, especially at Eden Gardens. The ground has a reputation for hosting high-scoring games, with the average first innings total during the 2019 and 2022 IPL matches being an impressive 195. This speaks volumes about the nature of the pitch in Kolkata. However, during these two seasons, only teams who scored 200 or more were able to successfully defend their total. This makes it difficult for a team to defend a total below 180 at this surface during IPL 2023. Thus, teams may prefer to bowl first here. Interestingly, statistics show that the team who chases at Eden Gardens tends to win more often.
