IND vs ENG Pitch report of Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
It’s going to be moderately hot outside, and probably a dry pitch. It is probably the same one in which Australia defeated South Africa. It’s anticipated that the spinners would have a lot of ground to work with because it’s a black and red soil blend. Under the guidance of ICC’s pitch supervisor Andy Atkinson, there was a lot of work done on it the day before the match. Initially wetting the area, then carefully rolling with a light roller before moving on to a heavy one.
