ODI Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

Though it is a batting pitch, the teams winning the toss in ODI at The Rose Bowl ground usually prefer bowling first due to the dew effect.

Hence, the pitch in which the match is to be played plays a major role in deciding whether to bat or bowl first.

T20I Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

As the ground has a batting pitch, the teams that win the toss in T20 matches here usually prefer batting first. Of the 5 T20 matches held here, the team that won the toss chose batting first in 4 cases and won in 3 cases. But in the last two matches held here, the teams bowling first have successfully confined the batting team’s score and chased it. This is mostly due to the dew factor. As the T20 matches are day-night matches or completely night matches, the dew falling on the pitch makes it difficult for the bowlers to control the ball in the second Innings. Moreover, as only 5 T20 matches have been held here, it is hard to come to a conclusion
