    Pitch report

    "Square boundaries are 64m and 67m, straight hit is 77m. The average bounce in South Africa is 8cm more than what it is in India, but here at St George's Park it's not so much so India will be comfortable here. Lots of grass on the pitch today so that it can hold the surface together. Many batters complain about the ball hitting the bottom of the bat, but I don't think they need to worry about it today," reckons Pommie Mbangwa.

    Aiden Markram after winning the toss

    "We are going to bowl first, been under the covers for most of the day, so I would assume it would move around a bit. Each game becomes important for us to fine tune things before the 2024 T20 WC, hopefully we can start well today. From my point of view it's about understanding if someone needs a rest. No debuts today."
