The wait for the champion in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season will end today (May 29). Today there will be a competition between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) for the title. This match will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad from 8 pm.
The name of this stadium was earlier Motera. It was prepared again in 2021 by making it anew. Then it was renamed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi. So far, 16 matches of IPL have been held here.
On which pitch can the match take place?
There are 11 pitches in this stadium. There are pitches made of 6 black soil and five red clay. This final match can be held on a red clay pitch if sources are believed. If this happens, then the spinners can get help. Red soil dries up quicker than black soil and is helpful for spinners. At the same time, fast bowlers get a good bounce on the black ground.
Overall, the fast bowlers can get help at the beginning of the match. The pitches of Narendra Modi Stadium are considered suitable for batting. Here, even if the team batting first makes a score of more than 180-190, there is a hope of winning by defending. However, the batting team is also expected to get an advantage in the second innings due to dew.
The Narendra Modi Stadium is currently the home ground of the Gujarat team. Earlier in 2010, 2014 and 2015, it used to be the home ground of the Rajasthan team. The Rajasthan team is also expected to get an advantage here in such a situation.
Today (Sunday), the weather in Ahmedabad is charming. It is very hot here. The maximum temperature in Ahmedabad today will be around 43 degrees Celsius. There is no chance of rain. Clouds will also remain non-existent. The speed of the winds will also be 39 km / h. The weather will be a bit cold on the night of the match. Teams will have to face dew in the second innings.
