SA20 2023: The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

The Joburg Super Kings will have their home at the iconic Wanderers Stadium. Here, we look at the pitch report of The Wanderers Stadium and the weather conditions in Johannesburg for SA20 2023.

After the conclusion of the auctions, JSK had one of the best squads in the competition. However, the start of the tournament has not been great for them. They would want established names such as Faf du Plessis, Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks to fire. Donavon Ferreira has done well till now and it is necessary for him to carry on. The team’s spin attack does not boast of popular names and this is one aspect they must focus on.

That said, with only six teams involved, all JSK would need is a few good individual performances to help them qualify for the next stage. Stephen Fleming has been a top coach in the IPL. It needs to be seen if he would find similar success in the SA20 League.

When it comes to rainfall, as per prediction, there could be as many as 15 days of rainfall this month. This will be a concern for all the stakeholders involved.
