Pitch Report: Batsmen to Make Merry at Eden Gardens

Pitch Report: Batsmen to Make Merry at Eden Gardens”

Australia are trailing the five-match series 0-1 after they suffered a 26-run defeat in Chennai.

Australia may rue letting India's destructive top order off the hook in Chennai on Sunday with the home side's batting power set to find conditions to their liking in Kolkata this week.

Asked about the possibility of showers, he said: "We are equipped to cover the entire ground and there is enough machinery to clear up even if it rains but it depends on the intensity and duration". He captioned the picture saying, "Mmm what to do when your daughter wants to rest in your bag??"

With rain threat looming large, the Eden Gardens remained under cover ahead of the second ODI. But Cricket Association of Bengal's (CAB) officials have expressed confidence that they will lay out a good playing surface.

"The weather will be a factor". If it stays overcast and if there is more rain, the wicket will be on the slower side. If it continues to be the same for the next two days, the pitch will not be a hard one because of keeping it under covers hence the ball will come slower onto the bat. "Unfortunately that won't be us this time, but hopefully it's high scoring and a fantastic match to watch".

CAB's pitch curator Sujan Mukherjee said, "It should be a good contest between the bat and the ball".

Opening bowlers Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins have both played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League and the Western Australian warns the Aussie quicks won't have it easy for game two at the iconic Eden Gardens on Thursday. "We are ready and conditions are ideal for one-day cricket", Mukherjee said.
