Pitch Report (Pakistan vs South Africa)
The pitch at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is a balanced pitch with something for all 3 departments, especially batters.
Pacers do not get as much bounce and carry on this ground as compared to the other grounds in Australia, however due to lack bounce we can see more number of LBW’s and bowled so pacers who attack the stumps will be important.
Spinners get some help from the surface, the ball grips and offers some spin and plays a bit slow as well.
Captains will prefer to post a good score and look to defend it, the last 4 matches on this ground have been won by team batting first.
Expect a score between 170-180.
