MCA Stadium Pitch Report 

The Maharashta Cricket Association is usually known for high-scoring pitches. It has black soil, which has good bounce and helps in batting. The highest ODI score recorded on this pitch was 356 and the lowest total recorded was 232 which goes on to show how good it is going to be for the batters. Moreover, pacers can use the bounce on the pitch to trouble the batters with bodyline bouncers. Indian players Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj might take good advantage of this.
