Match Details:

The 5th match of the SA Quadrangular U19 Series, 2020 will be played between South Africa Under-19s and Zimbabwe Under-19s at the Kingsmead in Durban.

The match starts at 9:30 AM local time (1:00 PM IST) (7:30 AM GMT). This game can be viewed on the Official Cricket South Africa channel on YouTube.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

South Africa Under-19s are still due to seal their berth in the ongoing Quadrangular series and they will look to do it by winning their last league game. At the moment, Proteas and Kiwi colts have the same points (4) in the league table with the run rate being the difference between the two teams. It is an important game from the perspective of the hosts and they will have to come up with an improved effort against Zimbabwe Under-19.

Proteas skipper Bryce Parsons has so far played the role of sheet anchor with the bat and is the leading scorer for his side. And, it would be interesting to watch if he can replicate his form in the crucial game. Zimbabwe Under-19s have been ruled out from the tournament with no win in the all games played in the ongoing tournament.

They might expect a win in this match of the Quadrangular series against the in-form hosts’. For them, Dylan Grant and Dion Myers have emerged as the top performers for their side. They will look to ruin the home side’s chance of qualifying for the final.

Weather Report/Conditions

The atmosphere is expected to be clear for a cricket match with no hindrance of rain on the game day. The temperature might also be suiting that will deviate between 24 and 29 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.


Pitch Report

The track at Kingsmead is expected to offer an exciting contest between bat and ball. So far in the tournament, the batsmen have successfully managed to score runs in the early stages but struggled in the latter part of the game. If the fast bowlers have to get some wickets in the first half of the game then they will have to hit in the right areas, otherwise, they will be smashed for runs on this ground. The majority of the games in the Quadrangular series are won by the side batting first and the same trend is expected to be followed in the next match.
