The pitch at the Seebarn Cricket Ground is well balanced. While the bowlers will get some movement early on with the new ball, the batsmen will need to spend some time in the middle before playing the big shots. As the wicket tends to get easier to bat on as the match progresses, chasing is the preferred option here. The average first innings score at the venue is 106 runs.
