Bellerive Oval Pitch Report

It is a flat and hard deck. The boundaries are not that big and the outfield is pretty quick. Overall, it is a batting paradise. However, it might be a bit on the slower side and that would bring spinners into the game. Furthermore, the pacers could extract some extra bounce off the surface with extra efforts.

Is Bellerive Oval batting or bowling pitch?

It is a Batting Pitch and the batters are expected to lead the charge here.
