BAN vs AFG: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamshala Pitch Report
While a total of nine pitches are available at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, reports suggest that the Bangladesh versus Afghanistan match might take place on the Black soil pitch.
Here it is worth noting that Black soil pitches tend to favour fast bowlers during the early innings, providing them with an excellent chance to take wickets due to the bounce they offer, which can trouble batters. Taking a look at the venue’s recent track record, teams that have chased down targets have had a higher success rate compared to those who set targets.
