Ekana Stadium gives good assistance to both batters and bowlers. Initially, the bowlers will enjoy their outing as the surface would have enough bounce and carry. On the other side, the batters will also like to take charge of the innings initially as the deliveries will come at a good pace.

However, as the match will proceed, the wicket will get a tad tacky and the bowlers will look to execute slower deliveries. Pace-off will be go-to delivery for every pacer in the Ekana Stadium, Lucknow.
