ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Simonds Stadium, Geelong Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

On October 16th, the T20 World Cup will start in Australia. The first game of the tournament will be between Sri Lanka and Namibia at the Simonds Stadium in Geelong. Here, we look at the pitch report of Simonds Stadium and the weather conditions in Geelong for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.


The first week of the tournament will involve the qualification fixtures for the Super 12 stage. In this part of the tournament, six games have been scheduled to take place at the Simonds Stadium.

In the First Round of the 2022 T20 World Cup, we will witness some top teams such as West Indies and Sri Lanka battle it out against the lesser-established cricketing nations. Countries such as Ireland and Zimbabwe will also be expected to put up a good performance to enter the next stage of the tournament.


Simonds Stadium, Geelong pitch report for ICC T20 World Cup 2022


Also known as Kardinia Park, the Simonds Stadium in Geelong has witnessed only one T20I encounter so far. Therefore, there is not much data for the team analysts to work on.

Sri Lanka has already played at this venue and that might help them in the First Round. This match happened in 2017 and Sri Lanka won that game. While Asela Gunaratne top scored with an excellent 84*, Nuwan Kulasekara picked up four wickets to help his side win the game. It was a good batting track and could turn out to be the same at T20 WC.

While the first part of the month is devoid of rainfall, unfortunately, after the tournament starts, there is rainfall predicted. Fans will hope that this does not play spoilsport.
