Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium Pitch Report:

Visakhapatnam, or Vizag as it’s fondly called, returned to the IPL spotlight after three years in the last match. The batting-friendly pitch here is known for its lively bounce and encourages stroke hits. However, the trend suggests spinners come into their own as the match unfolds, adding a strategic layer to the contest. Despite the pitch’s spin-assisting nature, the arrival of dew in the later overs is likely to tilt the balance back in favour of the batters, making for a well-rounded challenge.
