Here is the pitch report for Eden Park, Auckland:

Auckland’s Eden Park stadium features a drop-in pitch. These kinds of cricket pitches are prepared away from the ground, where the game is supposed to take place and is literally dropped into the stadium ahead of the start of a match. The drop-in pitches are often used in multi-sports stadiums as it allows the venue to host other sports. The Eden Park pitch is usually known to support batters and is a tad bit hard for bowlers.
