Match: Wellington Firebirds vs Otago Volts, Match 28
Date: 28th February 2021, 03:30 AM IST
Venue: Basin Reserve, Wellington
The pitch here at the Basin Reserve has favored the batsmen in the last couple of matches. The pacers have enjoyed great success with the new ball at this venue. In the previous game, the team batting second won the match by chasing down a big target.
Hence, we can say that the pitch will get easier to bat on as the game progresses. And the captain winning the toss will like to put the opposition in to bat first.
