4 Nagpur pitch report
Nagpur pitch often carries some balance between bat and ball. But generally, the pitch helps the team batting first as chasing is a bit tough here, indicated by that average second innings score of 128. If the team batting first scored around 180, then the chasers could land in a bit of trouble because of the increasing slowness of the surface.
