NZ One Day Trophy Pitch Report
The conditions at Seddon Park are known to favor the seamers, given the windy conditions on offer in the early stages of the match. Hence, the team winning the toss will look to field first to exploit the windy conditions. However, the pitch is well-suited for batting as the ball comes onto the bat pretty nicely. Moreover, shorter boundaries will make the job easier for batters.
