Eden Garden Pitch Report

The last T20I match played at the venue was held on 4th November 2018. It was a low-scoring affair between India and West Indies, which the hosts won convincingly. The wicket has not changed much since then.

The pacers can extract swing from the wicket early on, while there is something for the spinners as well. Adopting a cautious approach in the early overs, batters can breathe easy later on and can tee at the end stage of the innings.

Fans are in for a treat as they will get to see a full game of 40 overs. The maximum temperature will be around 32 degrees celsius and will drop to 23 degrees celsius. Rain is not expected to play the spoilsport as the chances of precipitation are only 6 percent.
