Pitch Report:

Trent Bridge hasn’t hosted any of the matches in this tournament. It’s an excellent venue for a big occasion. The batters will get the majority of the assistance from the surface and the bowlers will be exposed to the challenging conditions. It’s 300-310 kind of a wicket and whoever wins the toss should bat first.
