“We’ll have a bowl,” says Faf du Plessis, who reckons the toss doesn’t actually make much difference at this stage, with the wickets getting better. There’s one short side of the ground that could be a factor (or rather one extra-long side)… it’s an unchanged side. “We played some good all-round cricket in the last few games, so hopefully everyone can play their role perfectly today as well.”
Toss: Faf win the toss and chose to bowl first.
