NZ vs PAK, 2nd Test match: Christchurch Weather Forecast

The temperature at Christchurch will be around 20-23 degree Celsius on all days of the match. However, there is a slight probability of rain on each of the five days but that shouldn’t hinder the progress of play.

NZ vs PAK, 2nd Test match: Christchurch Pitch Report

The pitch at Hagley Oval has generally been a pace-friendly ground as there is a lot of grass on it. It will offer extra bounce and swing, which the pace bowlers will take advantage of. The batsmen, however, will need to save their wicket in the early session, post which scoring runs should get easier. Both teams would want to bowl first on winning the toss and make good use of the conditions early on Sunday.

The hosts have a great record at Hagley Oval, having won five out of seven games with one ending in a draw.
