Pitch Report

As has been the case throughout South Africa’s tour of Sri Lanka the track will have plenty to offer for slow and spin bowlers. It will be difficult for batters to negotiate spinners on the turning track of Premadasa Stadium. 

However, batsmen who adapt to the conditions well will find it easier to score runs and the side batting first will look to notch up a total of somewhere around the 160-run mark.
