RCB vs MI Pitch Report: IPL pitch report today, M. Chinnaswamy Stadium Pitch Report
Before we start looking into detail what the CSK vs RCB pitch report will be, let’s have a quick look at the history of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The stadium was established in 1969 and has since then hosted a number of international matches including 22 tests, 44 ODIs and 5 T20I’s. The stadium is the home ground of Karnataka State Team and IPL 2018 franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. The stadium is fully powered by solar panels making it the first in India and maybe even the world to be using 100% solar energy.
The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is known to assist seam bowling, unlike the majority of grounds in India which are spinner friendly. The fact that the boundaries at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium are much smaller than what you will find at the other grounds makes it, even more, tougher for the spinner to contain the batsmen. Last year the pitch at the Bangalore Stadium was much slower and run-scoring was a real task for the batsmen but fortunately for Virat Kohli and other RCB batsmen this season the pitch has been back to its normal character and we have seen some really big hitting from the likes of AB de Villiers and even MS Dhoni.
With Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma in great form, he will be itching to bat on this M. Chinnaswamy pitch which is known to be great for batting especially those who are known to hit big sixes. Mumbai Indians have some quality spinner including the youngster Mayank Markhande but they will not be looking forward to going out their tonight as the danger of captain Kohli smashing them to all parts will be looming large.
