The Kingsmead stadium pitch is known for helping bowlers, particularly seamers who get extra movement from the moist track. Spinners usually struggle here. However, batters can score a lot of runs once they get used to the pitch. The team winning the toss will probably bat first to try and set a big score.

As per CricTracker, whoever chases the score will win. MyKhel says that the Proteas will likely win the first match of the series since many Indian players do not have the experience of playing in South African conditions. We believe it will be a close cricket match. India will win the match as a number of top- and middle-order Indian batters enjoy it when the ball comes to the bat at a decent pace.
