Blundstone Arena Pitch Report and Conditions

The pitch in Hobart is generally regarded as batting-friendly as it is a flat track with a good amount of bounce. The pacers will get assistance in the initial overs of the game as they would play as a threat to the batters. The batters can score a lot of runs since the outfield of this ground is very fast. Meanwhile, one side of the boundary is very small and the other side is quite big. As per previous matches conducted at the venue, the team bowling first has had success as chasing is easy at this pitch.
