Pitch Report and Details

     As the game goes on, the wickets are known to become slower and flatter. This indicates that spinners would prefer to bowl here over pacers. However, the fact that more than 350 runs were scored in the T20I match between India and Australia in September 2022, the venue's most recent international fixture, suggests that the pitch is favourable for batting. Additionally, the team batting first and the team pursuing have each won three times in the six One Day International games played at the site.

     On January 18 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad, India will face New Zealand in the 1st ODI match of the New Zealand tour of India, 2023 on Wednesday. The match begins at 01:30 PM IST.

     The Men in Blue will take on their ICC nightmares, New Zealand, after destroying Sri Lanka in a three-match ODI series. Starting on January 18, the two teams will compete against one another in a three-match series.

     The New Zealand team will see many changes from that tour as players like Tim Southee and Kane Williamson are resting. Like India, New Zealand comes into the series off a 2-1 series victory in Pakistan. The team will be led by Tom Latham in the absence of the two.
