The toss has not been an integral factor at the venue this season. Teams batting first have lost three of the eight games. Despite its hard-hitting defeats to RR and KKR, the Titans have managed to defend four totals after losing the toss in Ahmedabad. The pitches have also aided batting, with the average first-inning scaling north of 190.
