Senwes Park Pitch Report:

The pitch at Senwes Park offers a consistent bounce, which encourages aggressive stroke play, although it doesn’t create much in terms of seam movement, making it less advantageous for swing bowlers. The track tends to get as the game progresses, therefore, batting second seems to be an ideal choice at this venue.
