Here’s the pitch report of the VCA Stadium:

The pitch at the VCA Stadium is typically sluggish, so any score exceeding 160 may be challenging to chase there, which is also indicated by the average second innings score of just 128. In contrast to Mohali, fans can expect a low scoring game.

Rain can also play spoilsport. However, if it doesn’t, the presence of dew may help the chasing side a bit. Overall, a balanced game can be expected.
