Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium Pitch Report
A total of 6 ODIs have been played at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad so far. India has played 6 matches, out of which they have won 3 and lost 3. India has won once batting first and chasing twice. This pitch will not be completely helpful to the batsmen. Here the fast bowlers can get wickets in the beginning. The team batting first needs to score more than 300 runs. Chasing the target here, even 280 to 300 runs can look difficult. There will be a bounce in the pitch.
