Netherlands is a nemesis team for South Africa. Not sure why ICC again pooled them together! Will South Africa take revenge against them OR will they succumb again? Looking at the trend in this world cup another upset is on the cards! If it was flat pitch (like in SENAI usually for LOIs) South Africa would have brutally tried to outplay them. But slowness & sluggishness of these pitches may allow Netherlands to again outsmart...

I think South Africa is not going to choke this time.
 
They did chase against Sri Lanka. can do it again today.
Because srilanka made 77, and even then sa fumbled and was struggling. Yes the NY pitch is horrifically bad, but still, to struggle big time is just bad.

And tbh, Sri lanka and bamgaldesh are trash. Nedtherlands is superior to them atm. USA is superior to these 3 as well.
 
Just the ideal pitch for South Africa to return to their choke business!
 
All the makings of a great rivalry...
 
Shaun Pollock and Ebony Rainford-Brent: We have a fresh pitch for today's game. There's a strong breeze blowing across. 70 meters on one side, 66 on the other, and 72 meters down the ground. It's been a change of strategy - they've definitely taken more grass off. I think this will play better and I think they're using this for the India-Pakistan game as well.

Nedtherlands 3-0 coming up now, SA chose to field, god they never learn
 
South Africa dug their own grave! They are chasing again! (on sluggish pitch) Unless they bowl well, they are doomed... If Netherlands bat sensibly and score anything above 120+ South Africa will be put under immense pressure!

Lanka …. How was the match with BD?
 
This pitch is not international standard. The bounce is lethal on this pitch.
It is very difficult to pitch to bat on
 
You know ICC have thoroughly rigged this draw when not only PAK and IND are drawn together, but also ENG and AUS, ENG and SCO, CAN and USA, SRL-BD and SAF and NED.

Every conceivable rivalry truly milked.

True that...
 
On the same pitch, tomorrow ind vs pak will happen. I don't see any demons in the pitch till now.curators seems to have shaven off entire grass on the pitch
 
Pakistan will suffer badly on this pitch.i don't see them making 100 runs on this pitch.
 
Tackiness is still there. The bat hitting the ball makes a funny sound. Not that crisp TAK sound
 
And there you see the difference between an actual athlete as a slip fielder (Jansen) who takes a blinder and our every own Chacha who didn't even move (reflexes are shot) when he was in the same position against the US...
 
Singh gone...don't know what the hurry is...everyone trying to play big shots
 
Seems like SA will decimate all the teams in this group. It will be a straight shootout between Bangladesh and Netherlands and Srilanka
 
SA has all the bases covered except choking :) They should go all the way given the resources they have.
 
this pitch is proper test match pitch how are you gonna play t20s here

Yea you cannot hit your way out here. Pitch offers seam movement both ways. Occasional balls stand up especially it is the case for tall bowlers who bow linto the pitch. Little bit of swing is also on offer.
 
Netherlands should bring out their smartness (as they usually do). They should somehow push to 15 overs, and then slog to reach 100+ They can challenge & suffocate South Africa with that score! (100 on this pitch is equivalent to 150 on other normal pitches)

would love to see these kind of pitches in 50 over games ....

Pitch is similar to South African pitch (test pitch) minus outfield. South African outfield is fast and offers value if you play good ground shots! West Indies pitches are usually not this deadly (outfield are slow though)...
 
I generally judge the nature of surface from the sound of bat hitting the ball. There is an empty hollow sound it makes. Not the sweet sound you expect.

yes. But they have Maharaj for that.
 
Sorry to say, trying to promote Cricket in USA has been terrible so far, especially NY as venue. Also, no access to ESPN.
 
What a runout by Markram . Usually when SA are losing to NED or a crucial match , they lose their bowling disciplines and start dropping catches .

They've been exceptionally disciplined with the ball and have been stellar on the field.

They will show their Gold standard choking in the second round

yes brother tomorrow will be low scoring match
 
It's interesting that South Africa are using Nortje as enforcer in the middle overs and perhaps bowling him out there and then.

Pakistan can also look to do the same against India with Haris. Considering Haris may not be at the top of his game when it comes to closing in, in the death overs.
 
SA officially break their curse. This match is useless, England vs Australia is where the fun begins
 
Pakistan is gonna get bundled under 100 on this wicket.
100 way too high. India removed Sri Lanka for 50 on Indian roads lol.

And Sri lanka vs Pakistan have been dead even since 2022, Where Sri Lanka won one game easily, the game in 2023 in Asia cup had them winning but it went down to the wire and the game in wc 2023 required Pakistan to bat put their skins to win
