Pitch and conditions

Known for being one of South Africa’s slower surfaces, St George’s Park should suit India’s attack. The average score over the last five matches – batting first – has been 227, and a warm and humid day is forecast in Port Elizabeth. There is also a highly probability of afternoon showers.

Stats and trivia

MS Dhoni has spent the series inching towards 10,000 ODI runs and he is now just 46 away.

Results at St George’s Park have been marginally in favour of the chasing team, with 17 of the 32 ODIs won by the team that fields first.
