A track to come out and bat first on with the team setting a target winning 80% of the contests played here, the pitch tends to get sluggish and see the ball grip and come slowly onto the bat in the second part. It’s a good surface to play your shots on in the first part of the match though with anything above 160 being deemed more than sufficient to win the match.
