SA vs AFG: Brian Lara Stadium Pitch Report:

Brian Lara Stadium’s pitch offers a fascinating duel between bat and ball. While early overs favour batsmen who can time their shots, the surface transforms into a spinner’s paradise as the match progresses. The pitch slows down considerably, making stroke-making difficult. This shift in character is likely to be most pronounced during the second innings, potentially giving spinners significant control.

Captain electing to bat first might capitalize on this early advantage by putting up a strong total before the pitch starts helping the bowlers.
