Batsmen friendly pitch
The pitch at the Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium is favorable for batting, but like most wickets in the country, it starts favoring fast bowlers and spinners as the match progresses. There are black soil pitches here, which will not give the bowlers as much bounce as Hyderabad. A spinning track will be prepared here for the second test between India and England. After the defeat in the first test, the host Indian team will need to be careful. India played the last Test on this ground against South Africa in October 2019 and won by 203 runs. This match was played for 5 days. Mohammed Shami (5 wickets for 35 runs) and Ravindra Jadeja (4 wickets for 87 runs) bowled brilliantly in this match. In Visakhapatnam, both the teams would like to make a big score by winning the toss and batting first.
