NZ-W vs ENG-W, Match 12, Pitch Report:
The field at Edgbaston was a bit sparse for the bowlers in this tournament. Spinners regularly get wickets and pacers have dominated death overs so far. The average number of first innings scored is around 134 runs, but we expect a high scoring clash between the two best teams in this tournament.
