Pitch and weather conditions:
The Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium pitch is a good batting surface. Still, it can also assist the bowlers, especially in the game’s latter stages.
The weather in Lucknow in October is generally pleasant, with average temperatures ranging from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.
Australia is the slight favorite at odds of 1.67. However, South Africa is also a good bet at odds of 2.26, given their recent form.
Pat Cummins on the Australia-South Africa rivalry, “I also always find with South Africa; we always match up quite similarly. They’ve always got some fast bowlers and some batters that take the game on, maybe a leg spinner. So, it always feels like a clash between two very similar teams. So yeah, no doubt it will be another great game tomorrow.”
