Pitch Report: The pitch at Motera Stadium is dry and there are a lot of cracks on the surface. It is worth noting that red clay was applied from Mumbai to prepare the pitch. It is not wrong to say that this pitch can prove to be helpful for fast bowlers. At the same time, spinners may have to struggle for wickets.
