Jaipur pitch report

According to Matthew Hayden, the pitch is characterised by a brown surface marked with prominent cracks, indicating its extreme dryness. This dryness has consistently favored spin bowlers since the stadium's inception in 2008.

Consequently, batting teams place significant emphasis on maximizing their scoring potential during the powerplay overs before focusing on consolidating their innings during the middle overs.

Regarding the ground dimensions, the boundaries vary in length. The boundaries along the length of the ground from one end are longer, measuring approximately 70 meters.

On either side, the square boundaries span 62 and 70 meters. In contrast, the boundaries at the opposite end are comparatively shorter, measuring around 56 and 64 meters.
