As seen in previous games, the pitch is a good one to bat on despite there being a hint of inconsistent bounce. The batters will look to go on the attack from the start, with the shorter square dimensions being the main target for them. There could be some swing early on for the pacers, but a change of pace will remain key at the venue. Both teams will prefer chasing, with anything over 90 being a competitive total.
