Sydney Showdown Ground Pitch Report

It is a sporting surface with something in it for everyone. There are plenty of runs available for the batters but there is some slowish-ness in the surface that helps the bowlers. The par score here is 160 and the team batting first has won two matches here, while the team batting second has won one game here this season.

Last result at the venue

Sydney Thunder (151/7 in 20 overs) could not get a result against Sydney Sixers (34/1 in 4 overs) due to rain – 30 December 2023
