Weather Conditions

East London has been traditionally a batter friendly pitch with a lot of runs on offer. We will have cool and breezy weather with ideal playing conditions on the match day.

Venue Details

East London has hosted few matches and the pitch might slow down as match progresses. We expect the scores to be around 260-270 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option on this pitch as the batting will be easier as the match progresses. Both skippers will look to bowl first in the match.

West Indies is a quality team that has had a huge success in the T20I format so far. They have a good all-round team with good batting and bowling depth and balance but lack form and consistency as a unit. South Africa lacks strong batting line-up with missing regular players. But they have home advantage and experience of playing here. We expect West Indies to win this match.
