GT vs MI pitch report: 

The Narendra Modi Stadium has a total of 11 pitches, including 5 black soil and 5 red soil pitches. The black dirt pitches are known to produce bouncy tracks that allow runs to be scored freely. Meanwhile, the red dirt pitches are known to dry out quickly and are more likely to help the spinners.

However, during the IPL, the Narendra Modi Stadium is known to be a high-scoring pitch with an average first innings total of over 170 runs. The odds of a team batting first or chasing are almost equal, so the toss shouldn’t be a big factor.

When and where to watch the GT vs MI match?
