SA vs BAN Pitch Report

The surface at the Kingsmead is expected to offer some helpful conditions for the fast bowlers. Rain is likely to play spoilsport on four out of the five days of the Test match and the overcast conditions will make things difficult for the batters of both the teams. However, the good quality of bounce will favour both the batters and bowlers to some extent. Thus, picking  more of fast bowlers and batters will be a good decision from the fantasy cricket point of view.
