Cape Town, Dec 12:  South Africa have told the groundsman at Supersport Park at Centurion to leave some grass on the pitch to have a bit of bounce for the first Test against India starting on December 16, a report said.

Supersport Park groundsman Hilbert Smith said he is heeding to what had been told to him but it depends on weather conditions in the next few days, though overcast conditions have been forecast in the run-up to the match.

"I've been told to leave some grass on it, so there will be bounce. I've rolled some grass into the base for that," Hilbert Smith, the groundsman at Supersport Park, said."It will have just a bit of bounce. But everything depends on the weather." PTI
