Big Bash League 2020-21 (BBL 10), Match 2: Melbourne Stars vs Brisbane Heat – Pitch Report
Recently, we saw two limited-overs international matches between Australia and India at this venue (one ODI and one T20I) – Manuka Oval (Canberra), where India won both those matches after batting first. While they played T20I on 4th December, India scored 161/7 (20 overs), thanks to KL Rahul’s 51 and Ravindra Jadeja’s late 44 not out off 23 balls. In reply, Australia only managed to score 150/7 (20 overs), where the leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal bagged three wickets (3/25).
The pitches at this venue provide assistance for the spinners. So, first batting can be a good option at this venue.
