The 2022 ICC Women’s World Cup Tournament that kick-started a few days ago in New Zealand is one of the most thrilling women’s tournaments in the history of women’s cricket. This tournament will be played in six cities across New Zealand namely Christchurch, Auckland, Dunedin, Hamilton, Tauranga, and wellington. These cities hold the pitches where these matches will be played at.

Below, we have discussed the pitch report for each one of the pitches. This will aid you when predicting the outcome of a game so that you can place your bet appropriately. This is because a pitch in cricket affects the outcomes of a game.

If a pitch is hard, then the ball is bound to bounce but if it is softer, then the balls won’t bounce that much. This bouncing of the ball affects the pace that the ball reaches to the batsman after delivery at a particular pace by a bowler. This is why a pitch report should be considered when looking at a cricket match review.
