    Pitch Report

    Kevin Pietersen looked at the pitch and found similarities between today’s surface and the one’s played on before. He pointed out the presence of grass near the danger zone which he reckons has been laid out to protect the surface over the long tournament. One game had dew, one witnessed a sandstorm and the other had no dew. 

    The captains will have to think carefully before taking a decision.

    Varun Chakravarthy’s mystery bowling will have to be on top for KKR today.
