Pitch Condition

Pitch is not a green mamba, where bowlers can control. Groundsman Evan Flint has been allowed to water the outfield only once which means dense patches are available on the pitches. A defeat at Capetown and then AB de Villiers’s imminent return to Wanderers cannot help Proteas to win the series. They are already lost their previous two matches, While Men in blue once again will try to manage the shared role of fifth-bowler responsibilities between Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav.
