As per the pitch report for the PAK vs IND clash, out of 141 ODIs, teams batting first have traditionally had the upper hand, winning 76 times compared to 55 wins for teams batting second. Eight of these matches ended without a result. The wicket here offers a fair play to both batsmen and bowlers. While an average first-inning score is around 225, indicating the need for batsmen to get their eye in before accelerating, the ground has witnessed a mammoth score of 375, showcasing the scoring potential. On the contrary, a score as low as 86 also points to the perils awaiting teams if conditions are leveraged effectively. Spinners, in particular, have dominated here, frequently determining the course of a match, especially in the middle phase. It's imperative for batsmen to be cautious against spin before switching gears. Even though history might nudge teams to bat first, the looming clouds could make skippers rethink and opt to bowl. Any score above 250 for the team batting first would put them in a commanding position.
