Pitch Report: In the recent IPL season, the wicket at Delhi was mostly batting-friendly and chase-friendly.
In the recent pitches used during the World Cup matches, the wicket was flat, where runs flowed throughout the match and there was a nice covering of grass as well. Expect some seam and assistance for the fast bowlers. However, it is expected to be dominated by the batters.
