HPCA Stadium Dharamsala Field Report

The pitch at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala is known for its pace, bounce and lateral movement. The Dharamsala track is particularly good for hitting with good bounce and some movement off the deck before the seams. Moreover, the outfield is well maintained and provides quick fielding for the batsmen and bowlers.

The pitch is generally in favor of the bowlers, especially the pacers. The movement and bounce available during the powerplay is vital for the bowling side and it also helps the fast new bowlers.

The field has traditionally been a location where many goals are scored. Spinners have no help from this field, as there is no turn available from the track. So it will be a great track to bat on, with occasional bounce and movement for the pacers.

On this pitch, the team winning the toss typically chooses to bowl first and chase the target.
