The pitch at Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas is predominantly a batting-friendly one. It provides enough assistance to the batters. The surface remains hard and has a decent pace in it. The ball comes onto the bat nicely for the batters to score runs. Players get full scores for their shots here.

However, there can be some help for the seamers, too, early on. The freshness of the wicket may aid the pacers in fetching movement in the early part of the innings. However, as soon as the innings proceed, it will become a paradise for the batters.
