T20 World Cup: pitch report, records of abu dhabi’s sheikh zayed stadium

The UAE and Oman will host the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 starting from October 17. Four venues were fixed for this. Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Al Amerat will be played. It is said that the UAE pitch supports spin a lot. In this article, we will tell you the pitch report, schedule, records etc. of Sheikh Zayed Stadium, ground of Abu Dhabi-

Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Stadium is one of the best stadiums in the world. The first match was played on this ground in the year 2004. That match was a first-class match that took place between Kenya and Scotland. Talking about the first T20 International match on this ground, it was played on 10 February 2010. Afghanistan won that match by 14 runs.

At the same time, the last T20 International match was played on it on 20 March 2021. This match took place between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe which Afghanistan won by 47 runs. Now recently the second phase of IPL 2021 was played on this ground, after which the T20 World Cup matches will be held directly. The first match of the tournament at this ground will be between Ireland and the Netherlands on 18 October.

Something like this is the pitch of Sheikh Zayed Stadium-
The pitch in Abu Dhabi is two-paced, due to which the batting finds it difficult to play shots. Batsmen are unable to guess what the speed of the ball is, so they try to score runs in the spinners’ over. The dew on this pitch greatly affects the outcome of the match, so winning the toss gives the advantage. The team which wins the toss bats first. Fast bowlers get more wickets on this ground. Due to the big boundaries, a score of more than 200 is not easily seen here.
