Pitch Report

Early seam movement is expected. Batters are also likely to enjoy the evenness of the surface.

Weather: Clear.

Fantasy Tips of The Day

While Cape Town’s bowling appears more formidable in comparison to Paarl, they seem to be a bit undercooked in the batting department.

In 9 T20s, Rashid Khan has dismissed Jos Buttler 4 times and has given away only 31 runs. The Englishman is yet to score a boundary against the Afghani leggie.

However, when Buttler last batted at Cape Town, he smashed 67 off 46 (3 fours and 5 sixes).

Given Jason Roy’s early jitters and vulnerability against spin bowling, Cape Town might be tempted to open with George Linde. The left-arm spinner dismissed Roy for a duck when South Africa took on England in the opening T20I in 2020.

Sam Curran has played 2 T20Is at the Newlands and has the best figures of 3 for 28.
