Indore Live Pitch Report: How is the pitch of Indore?
Indore’s Holkar Stadium was not initially chosen to host the third Test, but poor conditions in Dharamsala forced the match to be shifted here. So far only two Test matches have been played at this iconic ground in which the Indian team has won. Talking about the pitch of Indore, red soil is present here, due to which spinners are helped. Although the pitch is expected to be very batting friendly for the first two days, big scores can be seen here. The average score in the first innings in Indore is 353 runs, while the average score in the fourth innings is only 153 runs. Any captain would like to bat first after winning the toss here.
