The wait is finally over for the South Africa fans as their side resumes international cricket on Friday. South Africa lock horns with The Englishmen in the first T20 at the Newlands Cricket Ground and will look to start the series on a good note.

Quinton de Kock will lead the side in T20s for South Africa with the senior player, Faf du Plessis as his deputy. Also, the team management has decided to field the full-strength team for the series after a hectic T20 league in UAE. England has opted for a mixture of experienced and fresh prospects for the South African tour.

England are on the back of a T20 series victory against Australia in September. The Eoin Morgan led-side will look for a repeat against Proteas in the series.

Pitch Report

In the past, the track has played in favour of both, the batsmen as well as the bowlers. A total of over 175 is a par score at this venue. The batsmen will have to be aware of the variations bowled by the spinners, as they’ve enjoyed bowling at this venue when compared to pacers.

Weather Report

Though a cloudy and overcast condition is reported, the chance of a rain-affected game is too less. A maximum temperature of 23 degrees centigrade can be expected on Friday around Newlands Cricket Ground.
