Pakistan vs South Africa: Pitch & Weather Report

The surface will likely to be balanced throughout this game and provide enough support to both batters and bowlers. The average first innings score in ODIs at this venue has been 249 runs. Both pacers and spinners might get the same amount of help from the pitch. But Pakistani spinners have failed to produce anything in the tournament so far while South Africa's spin attack is the best after India and New Zealand.
