The Rose Bowl Pitch Report:
The surface at The Rose Bowl in Southampton has traditionally aided batters. However, this track will offer some assistance to the pacers early on in the contest with a good amount of seam and swing. Batters will take charge towards the middle and latter stages of the game. Either skipper winning the toss is likely to bowl first.

Probable Best Performers
Probable Best Batter
Devon Conway – New Zealand
In the first ODI, Devon Conway slammed an unbeaten (111* off 121 balls) century, which featured 13 boundaries and a solitary maximum, respectively. Considering his fine form, the swashbuckling southpaw will be hungry to score big yet again in the forthcoming match in a bid to help his side earn another win.
Probable Best Bowler
Lockie Ferguson – New Zealand
Keeping in mind the pitch conditions, the New Zealand pacer, Lockie Ferguson, will likely be aided by the wicket and will be able to extract good bounce and some lateral movement. In the previous game, the pacer claimed a solitary wicket and proved to be quite economical as he gave just 50 runs in his nine overs. Lockie will look to replicate a similar performance in the next game and look to dent the rival batting line-up.
