T20I Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

The fresh wicket in Cape Town will likely offer assistance to the pace bowlers in the match.the spinners and the batsmen could dominate proceedings. However, there have not been too many high-scoring matches at Newlands. The Newlands track is expected to be a batsmen’s paradise. There should be enough carry for the paceman who are willing to bend their back. Cape Town pitch has also shown to the tendency to slow down in the second innings with spinners coming into their own.
