Pitch Report

The team batting second has benefited greatly from the Newlands pitch. Additionally, the track is ideal for batting. When a team wins the toss, it should be their preference to field first.

It is evident that the pacers have dominated the SA20 League matches that have already taken place at The Newlands in Cape Town. The pacers will undoubtedly have a significant role to play in this match as well, judging by the track.

The conditions are ideal for express pacers like Jofra Archer and Olly Stone, who has performed admirably thus far. On this track, there is a lot of bounce and carry; if bowlers can bowl hard lengths, it will be hard for batters to hit their shots. The batters will be able to take advantage of the bounce if they can get set.

The batters will also benefit from the outfield’s quickness and large boundaries. Any score above 165 will be extremely impressive on this course. After winning the toss, both teams would love to bowl first to make the most of the conditions.

Weather Forecast

Temperatures will hover around 27 degrees Celsius, and there is no chance of rain. Most of the time, the humidity will be in the 50s.
