FS Vs NC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Pool toppers face off against each other in a humdinger of an encounter today.
At a time when the entire world of sports has been disrupted owing to Coronavirus, the CSA Provincial One-Day Challenge is set to offer some respite from the ongoing events. When the Pool A and Pool B leaders take on each other in the domestic South African 50 over competition, we are going to be in for a crackling encounter, a match which immerses us in a meticulous brand of cricket.
Taking to the tournamnet after a hiatus of almost three months after their last couple of matches were abandoned owing to inclement weather, Pool A toppers Free State will be looking to emulate the same form which saw them taste such consummate success way back in December. With 6 wins from 9 ties, the side continues to sit well clear in the pinnacles of the pool, a position they’ll be looking to consolidate on come today.
However, their speckle free record is set to come under stern scrutiny today with the side up against a levelly matched opponent on the day. This cross pool fixture sees them pitted against Pool B leaders Northern Cape, the only unbeaten side across both the pools, a narrative which is testament to just how electric and dominant the side has been this term.
Unbeaten in the tournamnet up till now, we envisage, Northern Cape keeping that pristine form going when they take to the middle today as well. They won’t have things easy with this set to be a closely contested affair but should manage to do more than enough to script a win on the day courtesy of the repertoire of bats in their unit.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The team winning the toss will be looking to step out and subject itself to a chase with the wicket only getting better as play runs its course down here. As the track is subjected to sun, the wicket settles down solidly to allow the ball to come onto the bat and make strokeplay a relatively easy task.
