The conditions in Basin Park tend to favor the pacers, given the windy conditions on offer. The captain winning the toss will look to put the opposition to bat first to exploit the windy conditions with the new ball. Nevertheless, the wicket is a good track to bat on, and batters can score freely once they get their eye in.
