Kingsmead Durban Pitch Report for SA20 2023
The Durban wicket is appropriate for the stroke makers. This wicket is widely known for its extra bounce and seam movement so the fast bowlers do have a role to play on this wicket. Batters who like to counter the bounce will love to play on this track.
The toss winners should opt to bat first and put a huge total on board. Batting second on this wicket will be tough as the Durban wicket tends to get slower as the game progresses.
