Ravi Bishnoi has been Bowling well and he may make an impact. Arshdeep Singh has been impressive from the last season and bowled well in death overs.
The conditions in Ahemdabad have been quite good for cricket. There is something in the wicket for the bowlers and so the fast-bowlers are always in the game while the batsmen are able to get the big-hits away making use of the small short boundaries A score of around 165-170 should be seen as par batting first.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There has been some due that comes in during the second inning and makes it harder for the team that is defending. Both teams enjoy chasing and seem to be at their best when they have a target in front of them.
