Pitch:

The 22 yards at the United Cricket Ground, Windhoek slightly favor the bowlers, particularly the pacers, resulting in the venue having an average modest total of 96. Batters, when have spent enough time in the middle, then can make the most of the pitch as the ball comes onto the bat nicely.

Weather:

A partly cloudy overhead with very little chance of rain means we are in for a complete game of cricket. The temperature is expected to hover at 27°C, and the humidity is forecasted to be at 44%.
