Pitch report

A sporting track awaits the fans

So far, there has only been a match at this venue in this tournament, which saw an average total being posted.

Although the track saw a high-scoring game prior to the World Cup, it is likely to remain sporty.

Anything around 300 would be challenging.

Therefore, the team winning the toss would ideally like to bowl first, as it becomes easy to bat second.
