England vs. New Zealand Pitch Report
The Narendra Modi Stadium has five red soil fields and six black dirt pitches. On red soil pitches, seam bowlers frequently receive more help, whereas slower bowlers increasingly enter the picture as the game progresses on black soil pitches. As a result, if they give themselves enough time to settle in at the crease, batters can get high totals. Which type of pitch awaits the two sides on Thursday will be intriguing to observe. While making a choice at the toss, captains must bear in mind that dew may play a significant effect.
England vs. New Zealand Stadium Capacity
With a capacity of 132,000 people, Narendra Modi Stadium is the biggest cricket venue in the world. The Gujarat Cricket Association owns the stadium, which hosts both domestic and international cricket tournaments. It is one of India’s top stadiums. The good news for fans is that there is no indication of rainfall during the match hours in the weather forecast, which is pretty positive.
