NZ vs WI, West Indies tour of New Zealand 2nd Test: Wellington Pitch Report
The pitch at the Basin Reserve will be similar to the one in Hamilton, as the bowlers are expected to be aided by the extra layer of grass. There will be ample display of swing with the new ball and will also get some extra bounce off the surface. However, the pitch conditions at the Basin Reserve offers a lot to the bowlers as well as the batsmen.
Both the sides will look to bowl first if they win the toss, as the pacers are bound to get plenty of assistance early on in the game. The spinners will also come into the play and will gain some help on the day four and five. However, the batsmen can score big once they settle in.
