HOW DOES THE FEROZ SHAH KOTLA GROUND PLAYS?
The pitch at Firoz Shah Kotla has largely been batting friendly. However, on 27 December 2009, an ODI match between India and Sri Lanka was called off because pitch conditions were classed as unfit to host the match. Based on match referee’s report of the match, the ground was banned by ICC for 12 months and returned as one of the venues for the 2011 cricket world cup.
Nowadays the pitch generally remains slow and low. The women’s game also favored spin and had low bounce.
Colin Munro has a great track record on this stadium with the strike rate of 132.50. So get ready for the most exciting match with the start of the season. Let’s see who wins the match to go ahead for qualifiers.
