Match Details

Match: MINY vs TSK, Challenger, Major T20 League 2023

Date: Saturday, July 29, 2023

Time: 6:00 AM (Jul 29)

Venue: Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas


Pitch Report

The Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas, is a miniature ground with a quick outfield. The batters have performed well here as they can try out their strokes and cross the fence. The pacers get early help from the track, but this track proves to be a difficult venue for the spinners as the small dimensions of the stadium make it difficult for them to stop the batters from playing long shots. 

Hence, we expect a flat track and a high-scoring contest. Batsmen can play their strokes freely on this surface. There is little margin for error for the bowlers especially the spinners as the quality of batting for both sides is too good at this venue. The par score here will be 180 runs and the side batting first in this game will get the advantage of setting a huge target, hence pressurizing the opponents.
