This ODI venue has a good record for the first batting teams while the successful ODI chasing of 250+ target has occurred only once and that too in 1989 when the hosts Blackcaps successfully chased the 254 runs target against Pakistan.

Century is not a regular scene at this ODI venue. The batsmen have to put enough patience to score good runs at this venue. Not only pacers, but the spinners also have some great records at this ODI venue.
