The first glimpse of the surface at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur shows that it has a tinge of grass above but looks dry underneath. The batters could pile on the runs for the first five to six sessions but the slightest amount of grass will also offer bowlers something to work with early in the morning and then spin could possibly dictate terms.
