The pitch is expected to play in favour of the batters. However, with nine games played at the venue, it is possible that the wicket might have slowed down. This means that the batters might have a difficulty in stroke play. Notably, in most of the games, teams batting second have had an advantage. Only three times teams batting first have won the match.
