PBKS vs DC Pitch Report Maharaja Yadavindra Cricket Stadium

The stadium is mostly known by the name Mullanpur Stadium or New PCA Sta𝔉dium as it will be the second original cricket destination in Punjab after Mohali’s PCA Stadium, which has served♍ as the PBKS home venue for several years.

The stadium has hosted a few matches in the Syed Mushtaq A🌜li Trophy 2023-24 where it was seen that the surface has helped the batters like it does at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. We can expect a good batting track at this ground and the par score will be around 180.

Fast bowlers can try to pick wickets with good line and length. Some early swing can help to tak💞e wickets in the powerplay. The afternoon matc🍨hes usually result in high-scoring totals.
