Simons Stadium is slightly on the slower side with variable bounce on the track. Spinners will enjoy bowling on this surface and will look to strangle the scoring rate in the middle overs especially. We expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs on this pitch.
The pitch eased out in the second innings in the only game played here and both captains will look to take advantage of the conditions on offer in this match too.
