Pakistan vs New Zealand: Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium weather forecast and pitch report for 2nd T20I

Check out the weather forecast and pitch report for 2nd T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium

The disappointment of the abandoned first T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand in Rawalpindi might be a thing of the past as weather forecasts predict a better picture for the second match scheduled for this Saturday, April 20th.

Rain played spoilsport on April 18, forcing the abandonment of the match after just two deliveries. After consistent pouring of rain, the first T20I was initially reduced to a five-over per-side affair. However it was eventually getting called off.

Pitch report for 2nd T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand

While the rain may have put a damper on the first T20I, it might not have a significant impact on the pitch for the second match. The Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium pitch is known for being batsman-friendly, offering a flat surface with good bounce. The extended period under covers might slightly delay the usual wear and tear, but it shouldn’t drastically alter the overall character of the pitch. Fast bowlers might get some early swing due to the moisture from the rain.
