The Holkar Cricket Stadium’s pitches are typically favorable for batting in the shorter format, although as is the case with most stadiums in the subcontinent, they become more helpful to spin bowlers as the Test match progresses.
If the willow holders hold to the crease for a considerable amount of time, they may be able to score runs. Even though it was batting-friendly in the beginning, the wicket has helped pacers and subsequently spinners from day one. Ashwin is a threat again because of his excellent track record there.
