The pitch in Alexandra is a balanced one that has something to offer for both the batsmen and the bowlers. Bowlers will enjoy bowling on this track with variable bounce. While the batters will have to spend some time in the middle before going for big hits. The captain who wins the toss will like to chase as the teams chasing have won most of the games at this venue.
