    KKR vs RR, Live Score: Pitch report

    ‘One of the square boundaries is very short at 58m while the other end is 71m long. The straight boundary is at 73m. Lots of runs on this pitch, this is the same pitch that was used for the last game, but there was a degree of turn for the KKR spinners, far more than what it was in previous matches. You’ve got to hit the right lengths as a spinner. There’ll be runs on this surface, the average score on this pitch is 205, but spinners from both teams will play a part,’ reckons Rohan Gavaskar, in his pitch report
