The Rose Bowl is a balanced surface with bowlers getting assistance in the initial overs. While batters can play their shots efficiently as the match progresses further. They pitch skids a lot & don’t provide assistance to spinners.
The venue is great for chasing scores as teams chasing scores have emerged victorious on this pitch. The team winning the toss should opt to bowl first & restrict their opponents to a low score.
