PES vs LAH PSL 2024 Match 17: Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium Pitch Report Today Match

Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is known for its flat surface, making it favorable for batsmen, not just in Pakistan but globally. With small boundaries and a well-maintained pitch, it has consistently produced high-scoring games in recent years. The upcoming PSL matches in Rawalpindi are expected to follow suit, providing batters with an opportunity to shine.

In day matches like the first one, teams winning the toss may opt to bat first to capitalize on the fresh pitch. However, defending a total can be challenging here, as chasing has proven to be a safer strategy. The pitch tends to remain consistent throughout the match, as observed in previous PSL games and T20Is held at the venue.

In a recent T20I at Rawalpindi, New Zealand successfully chased down 194 runs against Pakistan. Nevertheless, if the team batting first manages to post a score in the range of 210-220, chasing down the target won’t be a walk in the park.
