Clouds are going to hover around the stadium however no chances of rain are being foretold. The overcast conditions would surely help the bowlers throughout the course of play, although one could expect the batters to put up a decent show considering 170 has been the average first innings total at St George’s Park in MSL 2019 events.
Not to forget, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants have enjoyed playing at St George’s Park in MSL 2019. The home side has gathered victories on three out of four occasions played at this venue and thus could be backed to be the stronger side in the forthcoming feud.
