India vs Australia, 4th T20I, pitch report

The Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, nestled in the heart of Raipur, offers an intriguing pitch that caters to both batsmen and bowlers. As one of the prominent cricket stadiums in India, it has not witnessed much its fair share of gripping encounters.

The lush green pitch caused the cricket ball to bounce unpredictably and move sideways, giving India’s fast bowlers a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the conditions. They managed to dismiss the opposition easily, Speaking specifically about T20 matches, the most recent game at this venue was a Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy match between Railways and Rajasthan in 2018. Therefore, there isn’t much recent data to predict what might happen. However, it’s worth noting that the stadium has spacious boundaries, providing spinners with an advantage, especially after the dew sets in.

Pace and Bounce: Fast bowlers can extract good pace and bounce from the pitch, especially in the early overs. Seam movement and swing are factors that bowlers can capitalize on to trouble the batsmen.

Early Wickets for Pacers: The new ball tends to swing and seam, offering opportunities for fast bowlers to make early breakthroughs. Teams winning the toss might consider exploiting these conditions.

Probable playing XI

Shreyas Iyer, who’s become part of the squad for the last two T20Is, is likely to find a place in the playing XI. Mukesh Kumar, who missed the third T20I due to personal reasons, is back in the squad and is expected to take his spot in the XI, probably replacing Prasidh Krishna. This indicates that Avesh Khan, who played in the third T20I, is likely to retain his position. Additionally, Deepak Chahar, recently added to the squad, is also available option for consideration.

Probable XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan(w), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav(c), Rinku Singh, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar

With Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis back home, Australia’s middle order is getting a fresh makeover for this game. There’s a chance Chris Green might make his debut for Australia. In the last match, Kane Richardson couldn’t bowl his full quota of overs, leading Glenn Maxwell to bowl the last over. It’s not clear if Richardson is fit for this game, but either way, Australia has enough backup players in the squad to fill in if needed

Probable XI: Travis Head, Matt Short, Aaron Hardie, Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade(w/c), Tim David, Chris Green, Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Ellis, Jason Behrendorff, Tanveer Sangha

Saying of players

“Even though we scored 230 [in Trivandrum], we felt the match would go till the last over. So with this kind of dew, these totals are bound to happen and bound to be chased” – Ruturaj Gaikwad after the Guwahati T20I

“The boys are in good spirits, hopefully we can pinch another one in the next game and take it down to the last game” – Matthew Wade is hopeful about the T20I in Raipur.
