GT vs RR Eden Gardens pitch report
Eden Gardens in Kolkata last hosted an IPL match in 2019. Eden Gardens was supposed to host some IPL 2021 games, however owing to the Covid epidemic, it was postponed in the middle. The Eden Gardens surface in Kolkata has always been a batting delight with a hint of grass.
The Eden Gardens used to be a spin-friendly wicket, but following the installation of the new surface, the pacers have begun to love bowling there. With the fresh ball in hand, new-ball bowlers will obtain a perceptible amount of swing under light. If the hitters can get through the first few overs, they have a chance to have an impact.

The outfield at Eden Gardens is lightning quick, and it’s nearly difficult to stop the ball once it’s in the gap. The fielders’ work is made much more difficult by the presence of several practise pitches near the boundary ropes.
In February, Eden Gardens hosted a three-match Twenty20 International series between India and the West Indies. The hitters dominated all three games, with an average first-inning score of 176 runs throughout the three games.
Given the significant likelihood of rain in this match, both captains would like to bowl first, taking into account the DLS rule.
