TRT vs OVI Pitch Report
Trent Bridge offers an ideal batting wicket and generally witnesses high-scoring contests. It is a tough surface to bowl on, but it is usually the new ball bowlers who chip in with early wickets with the swing on offer. In the last two T20Is at this venue, three out of the four innings had totals above 200. It has hosted one game in Men’s Hundred so far, and a target of 144 was chased in the match. Toss will not be much of a factor here, however, posting a big total and applying pressure will be the way forward.
