Pitch:

The 22 yards at the Lugogo Cricket Oval are lively, yet neutral to some degree with a few high-scoring games and many low-scoring one-sided contests. The pitch favors the bowlers, particularly the fast bowlers, resulting in a relatively low average score at this venue.

Weather:

The conditions at the Lugogo Cricket Oval aren’t pleasing as the temperature is forecasted at around 21°C, the humidity level is at 83% and there is a high chance of rain, which could lead to interruptions or delays in the match.
