NZ-W vs ENG-W, Match 12, Pitch Report:
The pitch at Edgbaston has been a little lean for the bowlers in this tournament. Spinners are getting wickets regularly and pacers have dominated death overs so far. The average first innings scored here is around 134 runs but we expect a high-scoring clash among the two best teams in this tournament.
