UNIVERSITY OVAL STADIUM (DUNEDIN) Pitch Report

The pitch of UNIVERSITY OVAL Stadium is normally dry and hard, which breaks down as time passes. You will not see green grass at all on this pitch. Being dry and hard pitch, it is easy to bat in the first two innings on this pitch. With the passing of time on this pitch, the pitch begins to erode with the foot marks of the bowler and due to the heat, cracks are also seen on the pitch which helps the spin bowlers. If the batsmen have the ability to play spin, then the match goes to the fourth innings. Here in the third innings, runs are scored less than the first two innings and in the fourth innings, very few runs are made because here the ball starts to spin too much
