Call 17: England vs South Africa, 1st T20I – Over 12.5 sixes to be hit
England and South Africa both have plenty of six-hitters, and Bristol is a venue when you generally see a lot of sixes being hit.
The most recent T20I at this venue, between England and India, saw a total of 23 sixes hit, with Jason Roy and Rohit Sharma combining for 12 sixes. The reason for this is the ground dimensions: six of the eight boundaries here are less than 70 metres long.
The pitch is also usually conducive to batting. In such a good batting deck-small boundary setting, it is impossible to stop batters as good as those on these two teams. So, if you don’t come out on top here, consider yourself extremely unlucky.
