Date – 25 August 2022, Thursday

Venue –  Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester

Series –  South Africa tour of England, 2022

Pitch Report and Details

     The Old Trafford pitch is conducive to batting. The teams batting first typically go on to score enormous totals; the average first innings total of 335 runs supports this. The pitch is still batting-friendly after five days, but it does have a good bounce that pacers may take advantage of. The pitch has recently shown to be advantageous for spinners, so the spin overs may also be an important aspect of the game.

Pitch Behaviour

      Batting favour


     On Thursday, August 25, the second game of the three-game test series between England and South Africa will be played. The crucial match will be played at Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

     South Africa possesses all three, and when a player of Harmer's calibre is carrying beverages, it speaks volumes about how powerful they are. The ancient weaknesses of England surfaced, and this time there was no beating one's way out of problems.

      The Stokes-led England team would be pining for a comeback at Old Trafford after losing the first test at Lord's. Conversely, Dean Elgar's team would like to build on South Africa's successful tour thus far.
