BAN vs AFG, Gaddafi Stadium Pitch Report
The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Pakistan is known for its balanced wickets that provide a fair contest between bat and ball. The pitch is generally flat and dry, which allows the batsmen to score runs freely. The average runs per over at the Gaddafi Stadium is around 5.28, which is slightly above the ODI average of 5.25.
However, the pitch does not offer much assistance to the bowlers, especially the pacers. The pacers can leak plenty of runs if they are not accurate with their line and length. The spinners, on the other hand, can be more effective in the second half of the game, when the pitch starts to dry out. They can use their variations to keep the batsmen guessing and take wickets.
