IND vs ENG Pitch Report

The pitch at Niranjan Shah Stadium is anticipated to be batting-friendly, with early on carrying and good bounce. Later on, though, it might slow down and help the spinners. This pitch seems to offer a fair battle between the bat and the ball, with the possibility of spinners getting used as the game goes on. With the new ball, bowlers — especially pacers — may benefit from favourable circumstances instantly.
