Ground Dimensions: The venue has long straight boundaries (77m) and short square boundaries (67m, 64m). Third Man (70m) & Deep Mid Wicket (71m) and FineLeg (66m) & Deep Cover (86m).

Pitch Report: It is generally considered a bowling-friendly surface but it has also seen high-scoring matches as seen in the recent SA20 matches last year. 

There was a good amount of bounce on the wicket, which can be an advantage for the pacers, especially with the new ball. If the batters can play out the initial threat and settle, the batters can score runs freely due to the short boundaries and quick outfield. 

Spinners and particularly left-arm orthodox bowlers played an important role in the second innings, particularly in matches where the target was above par.

Points to Consider

  • The two finalists from last season's SA20 will meet for the first time this year. The Pretoria Capitals have a 2-1 lead in the three meetings between the two teams, but the Sunrisers Eastern Cape won the big game - The Final, to become champions.
  • Ottniel Baartman is the 9th highest wicket-taker at St George's park in T20s since 2020. He can be a good differential bowling pick especially if the Sunrisers bowl first as he will bowl at the death.
  • Left Arm orthodox spinners have had success at this ground. Liam Dawson who is yet to make significant impact can be a decent option in this match especially if Sunrisers bowl second.
  • If the Eastern Cape lose an early wicket, we will see Tom Abell come in to bat at Number 3. The last time they played at Gqberha, he scored an impressive 65 runs off 36 balls. If the openers get off to a great start, Markram and Stubbs are likely to get promoted ahead of him.

Points to Consider

  • Kyle Verreynne played a crucial, stabilising innings at Number 3 in the last match, which is something the Capitals missed to start the season due to their weak middle order, which was not able to convert the great stage set by th openers, into a big score.
  • Back Adil Rashid as a differential pick if the Capitals are bowling second. His fantasy potential will rise in the second innings due to the advantage he will get by thriving on the scoreboard pressure on the chasing team. He is selected in 34% of the teams currently.
  • Hardus Viljoen has a good record and exprience of bowling at Gqeberha. He will bowl in the death overs for Pretoria, making him a good differential pick at just 13% selection.
