HOW DOES THE WANKHEDE STADIUM’S PITCH PLAYS?
The wicket at Wankhede offers help for the pacers as well as for the spinners. Close proximity to the Arabian sea helps the swing bowlers considerably, especially during early hours of the day. However, spinners have been known to benefit during the last couple of days of a Test match as the pitch turns into a vicious turner.
Rohit Sharma has a great track record on this pitch with a strike rate of 134.29. So get ready for the most exciting match with the start of the season only. Let’s see who wins the match to go ahead for qualifiers.
