Venue Details

The venue for the first ODI is the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. This iconic stadium has witnessed many memorable cricketing moments and is known for its electrifying atmosphere.

IS Bindra Stadium Pitch Report

The Mohali pitch at the Punjab Cricket Association is renowned for being one of the finest batting surfaces in India. With an average first innings score of 265, it is clear that batsmen thrive here. It is not uncommon to see scores reaching 300 on any given day at Mohali. A memorable example of this was when Rohit Sharma scored an impressive 208 runs against Sri Lanka in 2017 on the PCA Stadium pitch. Considering the potential impact of the dew factor during the second innings, it is expected that the team winning the toss in the IND vs AUS match will choose to bowl first. The presence of dew is anticipated to be beneficial for the teams batting second. Dew causes the ball to become moist, making it challenging for bowlers to maintain a firm grip. Additionally, teams chasing a target have historically experienced a higher rate of success in these conditions due to the impact of dew.
