Pitch Report: India vs Sri Lanka: 2nd Test Preview

Pitch Report: Pacers find the pitch of M. Chinnaswamy Stadium quite helpful in the first 3 days as the pitch has a fair amount of grass. But as time passes gradually, the cracks open up on the pitch, and it benefits the spinners. According to past matches and their results, the batters tend to score a lot during the first 3 days. The match starting tomorrow is a pink ball test, hence the team batting will have an additional advantage.
