The pitches at the Holkar Cricket Stadium are usually batting friendly in the short format, but like most venues in the sub-continent, they have assisted spin bowlers as the match progresses in Test. It is batting-friendly in the early days. The wicket has also an advantage for pacers from day one. Ashwin has a great record at the venue and will once again be a threat.

The teams can expect the game to go on till at least day 4 as it is a batting-friendly pitch. The average 1st innings total at this venue after 2 Tests is 353, which drops down to just 153 in the 4th innings. Any team batting last on this deck wouldn’t want to chase anything over 150.
