Pitch Report: The pitch favoured the batting in the series opener with both the teams scoring over 200. It looks like the same pitch will be used for the second T20I as well. Thus expect it to wear down and assist the bowlers. With short dimensions at Eden Park, the high scoring game cannot be ruled out though spinners might find themselves in the game and make things little difficult for the batsmen.
