The pitch is a good one to bat on, with the average first innings score hovering around 165-175. Both teams will look to bat first after winning the toss as teams chasing have a slightly better record at this venue.
Pacers and spinners might not have much in store for them at the County Ground. They will taste success if they understand the pitch conditions beforehand and trouble the batters by delivering the perfect lines and lengths.
