Punjab Cricket Association Stadium Pitch Report:

The Pitch of Punjab Cricket Stadium is famous for batting friendly, where batters can play big shots. In the last match at this venue, batters of LSG and PBKS played attacking cricket against bowlers, which shows that the pitch is ideal for high-scoring matches. Flat pitches with small boundaries make Punjab Cricket Stadium ideal for hosting high-scoring totals.

The pitch of Punjab Stadium is also helpful for pacers in recent matches, and they also get an uneven bounce from the surface. Yash Thakur took four wickets in his first IPL match, and Naveen ul Haq took three wickets in PBKS. Weather conditions are also responsible for changes in the behaviour of the pitch.

Overcast conditions favour batters to play big shots against bowlers, as seen in recent matches of IPL 2023.
