Arun Jaitley stadium pitch report:-

As if now we don’t have enough data of international cricket but if we consider the IPL then we will have enough data. IPL is hosted in this ground since 2008. 

At the beginning years of the ipl this ground pitch was bowlers friendly. It was hard to score runs for a batsman but in the last few years this pitch has changed his nature.

In the last few years the average score of batting 1st team is 165 which is nice according to the T20 standards.

But this pitch also helps the bowlers because when most of the matches are played at night, fast bowlers could get some swing at this ground. 

This pitch is usually dry in nature so spinners could get some spin in the second inning. 

So, batting first is a nice option but dew factor is also important here. If the captain thinks dew is going to come then he can Bowl first. This all depends on the captains how they assist the pitch.

But overall batting first is a nice option because while chasing pressure off the scoreboard can be dangerous.
