The Eden Gardens surface in Kolkata often results in high-scoring games. However, this time around, it is a batter’s paradise only during the first 15 overs of the game. Later in the game, it may give spin bowlers a chance to make an impact and heighten the tension in the struggle. With the new ball, the hallowed grass can also be effective since it can provide carry.
Glenn Maxwell will return to the side after sitting out the previous game due to cramps.
