The pitch is expected to be good for batting. Reports are suggesting that the track will be surrounded by little grass. So, the initial few overs will be crucial as the ball will get some movement. Once the batsmen get settled, then run scoring will become easy.
The team winning the toss will look forward to field first because the conditions will become better in the second phase of the match

Team Analysis: South Africa
Rassie van der Dussen, who has a groin injury, may be dropped. In place of him, Aiden Markram will most probably get into the eleven. There’s no update on Lungi Ngidi’s injury, and he may have to warm the bench yet again. Hashim Amla’s poor performance is also a point of concern. So, he will be eyeing to get some runs. Other than this, no other replacements are expected.
Full squad: Faf du Plessis (C), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), JP Duminy, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Chris Morris, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Beuran Hendricks, Imran Tahir, Rassie van der Dussen.
