So far, a total of seven T20I encounters have happened at this venue. Out of this, teams batting first have won five matches and the remaining games were won by the chasing squad. Considering four games will happen at this venue, as the tournament progresses, batting first could be an option.
Babar Azam‘s 97* against West Indies in 2018 is the highest individual score on this venue while Mohammad Wasim’s 4/40 against the same opponent in 2021 is the best bowling show. The average score batting first is 192, which suggests that fans can expect a lot of entertainment.
