Rajiv Gandhi Stadium Hyderabad Pitch Report

The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad is known for its batting-friendly pitches, fostering high-scoring encounters, particularly in the initial stages of a match. 

There is minimal and sufficient bounce available from the track that likely helps the batters to play their shot as the hard ball comes onto the ball easily at the initial stage of the game.  As the game progresses, the pitch generally becomes more hard with a flat surface that assists the spinners. The pacers are not likely to get much help from the surface. 

Also, dew might play a factor later in the game, and the captain that wins the toss, will most likely elect to chase as the pitch will remain same throughout the course of 40 overs.
