Pitch Condition/Report:

The game between New Zealand and Japan on Saturday was the first major 50-over match at the Potchefstroom’s North-West University which turned out to be a washout. New Zealand were on the way to produce a big total against a weak Japan team. The recent T20 matches played here witnessed 160+ totals. Hence, Sunday’s match promises to be a high-scoring one.
