SA vs AUS Pitch Report:
The pitch at the SuperSport Park in Centurion is regarded as one of the fastest in the world. Batting, however, is not tough as it stays true to its bounce. Meanwhile, spinners will be ineffective on this pitch due to the lack of turn. The captain who wins the toss may choose to bat first on this wicket because the ball will come easily onto the bat.
