“It was very hot during our practice session yesterday and looks like the same today as well. I’ve been feeling good, just want to enjoy doing whatever the team wants me to do and win matches for the team. I think there’ll be some assistance for the spinners, but it’s very hot, we need to asses the conditions quickly and be at our very best. That was a one-off game for one of our bowlers (on the Rinku Singh heist when the two teams played each other in Ahmedabad), but we can’t think about that too much, just move onto the next game.”
KKR vs GT, Live Score: Pitch report
‘We’re playing on pitch number 6. Almost identical square boundaries at 63 and 64m, the straight boundary is a bit longer at 74m and the pockets at 70m. The surface looks superb, there is a bit of rough and a bit of breeze blowing across, but it’s a good batting surface once again’, reckon Daren Ganga and Matthew Hayden
