PITCH REPORT : The pitch is good for batting as the curator has sprinkled water at the end of the day the day before yesterday. The pitch might assist spinners as the pitch is being used regularly.
Faf: Have to discuss the things we did wrong, learn from that and put it behind. The powerplay has shown that there is a cluster of wickets that have fallen. Wind is a factor. Not sure how the wicket is going to play. As KP said they sprinkle water, might stick early on. Should get better as it dries out. Two changes – left-arm spinner coming in and Alzarri Joseph coming in.
Pollard: Going to field. Yes 6 games have been played here, but every night they have to sprinkle water on the surface. Let’s see if there’s moisture for the seamers. Have lost wickets at regular intervals – it’s something we discussed. We have to be smart and intelligent in the way we go about batting. One forced change. Darren twisted his ankle and misses out.
