The bowling-friendly 22-yard strip at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town provides assistance to bowlers. Throughout the competition, the seamers play a larger role. The deck gives the pacers some extra bounce and zip. Because the bowlers will be looking to dominate the game, either skipper who wins the toss may choose to field first.
