Meanwhile, the red soil pitches usually dry up soon and provides assistance to slower bowlers or spinners as the match eventually progresses. The last pitch with the mixture of both soils is meanwhile more even. In the opening game, the pitch proved good for batting throughout the match, and both teams can expect a similar surface for the upcoming match.

As such, the batters can expect to score high runs especially when dew sets in. However, during the first innings, the quick bowlers and spinner can keep the batters in check if they managed to hit the right areas. Since India have the upper-hand in spins, the toss will become crucial part of the game.
