Pith Report: In the last three years, 46 T20 matches have taken place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, with an average first-innings score of over 170 runs. Since only 33% of games have been won by the team batting first here, bowling might be the preferred strategy for the team that wins the toss on Tuesday. On this pitch, pacers have had the upper hand, taking 70% of the wickets, compared to spinners’ 30% total. Four of the five games played here this season have been won by the team chasing the goal.
