Pitch Report:

The Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow has produced balanced tracks with an average score of 226 where both batters and bowlers can dominate. The batters can capitalise in the first innings when the pitch isn’t doing much. Similarly, as the day goes through, bowlers can use the conditions to their advantage with the pitch slowing down and gripping.

Team Analysis:


The Scott Edwards-led Netherlands have certainly emerged as one of the biggest surprise teams in the tournament. The Dutch so far have played great cricket and finally won their first match with a big win over South Africa. The batting may be the Netherlands’ biggest concern with the top-order failing to score runs. While the bowling has looked good with the likes of, Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merwe and Aryan Dutt performing well.
