The track at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack has been a balanced one. Historically, the pitch assists the batsmen but the bowlers have had their say as well. All teams batting first have gone past 120 but none of them have breached the 160-run mark.
The average score when batting first is about 140 and four of the six completed games have been won by teams that were chasing. Moreover, with this being an afternoon start, the dew might not be as big a factor.
