Buffalo Park, East London Stadium, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling India Women vs West Indies Women, 3rd Match Preview (1/23/23): INDW vs WIW, 3rd Match, Womens T20I Tri-Series in South Africa 2023 – Live Cricket Score

The first match of the South Africa-India-West Indies tri-series will be played at Buffalo Park in East London between India Women and South Africa Women. Only South Africa will host the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup, which will serve as a crucial practice series for all three teams. The South African team, led by Sune Luus, is very strong in their home environment. Marizanne Kapp will be in charge of this team’s all-rounders, which are its greatest strength. Shabnim Ismail is South Africa’s top pacer, and Ayabonga Khaka and Msabata Klass provide her with some capable assistance.

The Indian Women’s Cricket team recently had a successful home series against Australia, and they will try to win the series here. The Indian team will once again be led by Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur, but the way Richa Ghosh batted in the previous series will give the lower order a lot of confidence.

Buffalo Park East London pitch report

Only one Women’s T20I has been played at East London’s Buffalo Park, and it was in 2018 between India and South Africa. Mithali Raj and Smriti Mandhana both scored half-centuries in that match, which India won by nine wickets despite attempting to score 143 runs.

Many domestic Men’s T20 matches have been played here, and the average score in the first innings is 145 runs, indicating that batting has not been easy. In the initial overs, the surface does assist the pacers, and in the second innings, spinners come into play.

It has been observed that batting becomes easier in the second inning, and once the bases are set, batters can also score a lot of runs on this surface. Attempting to win the toss in this match will be better for both teams based on the stadium’s past records.
