This match will be the first between the two sides at the newly-built cricket stadium. The stadium, with its black soil pitch, has not been particularly supportive of spinners. In the only IPL 2024 game played at the venue so far, the Punjab spinners picked just two wickets. However, the Kings chased down a 174-run total with relative ease, indicating that the pitch is good for batting.
