Pitch Report

Scott Styris having a look at the track observes that it has a good green tinge of grass but not that green as Wellington is used to see. Reckons that in the past, Day 1 tends to be slow and then the pitch quickens up as the game progresses. However, because the county has been devoid of first-class cricket this season, the pitch should nip around from today itself, he reckons.
