The Gabba, Brisbane Stadium, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Australia vs South Africa, 1st Test, Day 1 Preview (12/17/22): South Africa tour of Australia, 2022-23 – Live Cricket Score

The stadium, which is located in the Brisbane suburb of Woolloongabba, sometimes known as the Gabba, has undergone major refurbishment in the last decade. The grassy banks, Moreton Bay figs, and dogtrack have been replaced with modern, concrete stands, which have detracted from the stadium’s charm but ensure that it now provides superb facilities for both players and spectators.

One of the most iconic cricketing images of all time is of the vital run-out in the tied Test between Australia and the West Indies in 1960-61. In recent years, Shane Warne has made it a favourite haunt, with the extra bounce from the often-excellent surfaces supporting his legspin. In early 2006, a record crowd of 38,894 saw the country’s first Twenty20 international.

pitch report

The first ICC T20 World Cup match will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane, and a series of matches will continue to be played there indefinitely. The pacers will thrive in this environment because this course is one of the most bouncy in the world.

Prior to the event, two warmup matches for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 were played on this field, and hitters won both of them. The batters will be pleased with the ball that comes off their bat because the track has a nice amount of bounce.

The Gabba is thought to be Australia’s best pitch. It usually gives the quicks a lot of bounce and carry, and the stroke-makers benefit from the steady bounce. Australia’s top groundsman, Kevin Mitchell Jr., has spoken out against plans for a drop-in pitch, arguing that it would be impossible to replicate the traditional characteristics.
