This crucial encounter will be conducted on the renowned Kingsmead Cricket Ground in Durban.

While NMBG is at the top of the points table with four wins out of 5 games, Durban Heat is on a mission to grab their first win as three of their games have been washed out due to rain. 

Pitch Report

Kingsmead ground has played host to Tests since January 1923 when South Africa and England played to out a draw. As the ground lies in the same time zone as the rest of South Africa, it is exposed to bad light and humid climate, which can result in powerful thunderstorms. The pitch incorporates traditional grass banks and towering modern stands as well. 

Weather Report

According to the weather reports, the maximum temperature will be around 30℃ and the minimum temperature will be 15℃. The visibility will be around 10 km, i.e. 5 miles. We may expect around 5.1 mm of precipitation to fall, only if the humidity continues to prevail.
