Out of the 27 games played at the stadium, 13 were won by teams that batted first, 13 by teams that bowled first, and one game was abandoned. Out of the last six games, five have been won by teams that batted first. The average first innings score in the last five games has been 260, and the highest target chased in the history of the stadium is 278 by India vs. Sri Lanka back in 1982.
While the Delhi pitch has typically been on the slower side, it was a belter of a track to bat on in the most recent South Africa vs. Sri Lanka match. In the upcoming fixture, the surface is probably going to act similarly. With the venue’s history in mind, the captain who wins the toss is likely to choose to bat first in order to take advantage of the favorable batting conditions available.
