All eyes will be on the pitch in Ahmedabad. In Lucknow, the track did not suit the T20 game and the likes of Hardik Pandya vocally expressed their displeasure. That said, based on the previous games that have happened in Ahmedabad, we can expect a fine match between the teams.

For India, the focus will be to improve the performances with the bat. The openers have been disappointing, so far, and it won’t be a surprise if Prithvi Shaw gets a game. Deepak Hooda could also lose his place, especially after Washington Sundar showed his power-hitting skills. The Kiwis will also be expected to put out a better show that they delivered in Lucknow.

Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad pitch report for IND vs NZ 2023

Consistently, a score of above 150 has been scored by teams at this venue. Therefore, the batters can be confident of a fine outing here.

Moreover, it depends a lot on the pitch which will be used for the game. While the pacers can expect some bounce, if the track is dry, the spinners will come into the picture. The boundary size is bigger compared to some of the other stadiums and hence, it would be a good game between the bat and the ball.
