Pitch Report for IPL 2022 

The surface at MCA Stadium Pune is constructed of black dirt, which benefits spinners well. The spinners will be seen coming into action immediately away since the surface will be quite helpful to them. However, because of the narrow borders, the games at the site tend to be high-scoring affairs. To prevent massive runs here, the pacers will need to bowl in the right locations. Large totals have been recorded in recent games at the MCA stadium.
