Southampton pitch report

The Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton is one of the best batting wickets in England, and the records at this very venue highlight in the same direction as well. This ground serves as the home ground to County Side Hampshire, and the batters of the side did really well this season.

A total of 10 T20Is have been played here at this very stadium, where six games have been won by the teams batting first. The average 1st inning T20I score here has been 170 runs, which hints that it is a good track to bat on.

The even bounce on the track will encourage the batters to play their shots by trusting the wicket. This ground’s outfield is rapid and quick, and once placed in the gap, the ball will sail towards the boundary ropes. However, two games of the Hundred have been played at this stadium this season, and the pacers did well in both matches.

The biggest boundary at this stadium is around 82 metres, whereas the smallest boundary is around 76 metres. So, the boundaries of this stadium are relatively big, and the bowlers will take this to their advantage. Both captains would aim to chase after winning the toss.
