The slow-natured center wicket at Warner Park poses a challenge for batters to score with ease, and the modest average score of 86 at this venue attests to this fact. Bowlers, particularly spinners, play a crucial role in dictating the game’s outcome.


With partly cloudy skies overhead and a minimal chance of rain, the conditions are ideal for a complete game of cricket. The temperature is expected to hover around 28°C, with moderate winds and humidity at 69%.
