IND vs BAN pitch report for 1st Test
Spin is likely to play a big part in the upcoming Test, with spinners picking up over 65 percent of the wickets in the last three matches. While the average first and second innings scores are on the higher side, the pitch is bound to slow down as the match progresses. Teams will look to bat first and put up a big first-innings total before the pitch begins to deteriorate.
