It's a good wicket, but judging from the way NZ vs PAK game went, due will be a big factor (Making toss a lesser factor).

All in all I think it's a bat first wicket, but when bowling second the latter overs will cause problems due to the dew.

If batting second, the new ball will be challenging, but will get easier to bat as the ball gets old.
