Pitch Report: The Arun Jaitley Stadium has hosted 27 games in total, 13 of which have been won by teams that batted and bowled first, with one match being called off. Teams that bat first have won five of the last six games. The last five games’ average first-inning total has been 260, while the highest target ever pursued at the location was 278 set by India and Sri Lanka in 1982.Although Delhi’s pitches have often been slower, the most recent match between South Africa and Sri Lanka had a fantastic batting track. It’s probable that the surface will act in the same way in the next fixture. In order to take advantage of the favourable batting conditions available, the captain who wins the toss is probably going to choose to bat first, keeping in mind the venue’s historical record.
