    The flatter the better for South Africa I would have thought. They had a tough surface last week and failed. Their record on roads is pretty good and you would rather face India on a road then a square turner where their plethora of spin options gives them a big advantage.

    Another pro-Indian conspiracy.

    I blame the BCCI.

    And the Mods on CW.

    India's batting > South Africa's batting

    So this helps the Indians more.Not by a huge margin maybe,but it does.

    Actually, it negates the difference between the two batting line-ups.

    But Steyn on flat wickets >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Anyone India have on flat wickets.

    Thus advantage South Africa. And anyway, flat wickets negate quality differences in batting lineups more than tricky wickets.

    If this was turning square, India would have the advantage. Hopefully they are saving the massive turners for the knockout stages. I'd be pissed off if India lose on a non-turner in the elimination stages.

    Lol Steyn in a hack in ODIs. Morkel is the one I would be more concerned about, hope the bounce is waist high.

    Actually a square turner with uneven bounce suits India much better than a proper flat pitch.

    And the type of cloud cover nagpur has ,don't think it will make a difference.
