Till now, a total of 2 T20I encounters have happened at this venue. The hosts New Zealand have won one game and they lost the other in Hagley Oval. As a sample size, there is not too much data for the teams to derive a pattern.

The average score batting first is 169, which is actually a good score. Teams will target to at least reach the par score. Devon Conway did well with an unbeaten 99 in 2021 against Australia. While this is the best batting performance, Ish Sodhi‘s 4/28 in the same series is the best bowling display till now.
