The Ekana Cricket Stadium is known for its favourable conditions for bowlers, especially spinners. The pitch is known for its slowness, which makes it difficult for the batters to get going and hit the ball through its line. Additionally, as the match progresses, the slow nature of the pitch can also benefit pacers, who can employ various variations, like slower ones and cutters, along with their stock ball.
The sample size for the ground is small, with just four ODIs being played here. In these matches, the average first-inning score is 220, with the side batting first and second, splitting the matches 2-2 apiece.
The highest score posted here is 253/5 by West Indies against Afghanistan in 2019. Conversely, the lowest total posted here is 194 by Afghanistan in 2019.
Due to the nature of the surface, the team that wins the toss may opt to bat first and put up a competitive total on the board. Due to the slowness and no due, conditions will continue to be advantageous for bowlers even in the second inning.
