Arun Jaitley Stadium Pitch Report 

Arun Jaitley Stadium has smaller boundaries, which favors power hitters and generally favors batsmen. However, spinners and medium pacers can still use variations in pace and length to gain an advantage, though not as much as batsmen. On the other hand, Kotla Stadium usually has a slow ground for ODIs. Because of the small boundaries and fast outfield, teams batting second tend to do slightly better.

In the 25 ODI matches played at Arun Jaitley Stadium, both teams have won almost an equal number of matches, with the team batting second having a slight advantage. The pitch at Arun Jaitley Stadium is better suited to batting first in ODIs, with more runs being scored in the first innings in recent times. The surface suits both batsmen and bowlers as it is dry and hard. However, spinners are usually more successful than fast bowlers.

The Indian team has played 21 ODIs at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium from 1982 to 2022. They have won 13 and suffered 7 defeats there.
