Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
The Adelaide Oval, an iconic Test match venue, is set to host its first men’s T20I since October 2019. The capital of South Australia has been earmarked for seven matches, including the second semifinal on November 10.
India plays its Super 12 match against Bangladesh in Adelaide on November 2, while host Australia takes on Afghanistan here two days later.
As the name suggests, the ground is oval in shape, making it more difficult to access the long, straight boundaries. The pitch is considered good for batting – the average score for teams batting first in the five T20Is played is more than 181.
Spinners tend to find assistance here and have taken 328 wickets in all T20s – most among all venues in Australia. The spinners’ average of 26.06 is also the second-best among the seven venues for the T20 World Cup.
