Pitch Condition:

Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium,

Wicket is expected to be a sporting wicket. Batsmen and spinners are expected to get a somewhat extra advantage. You can expect scores in the range of 150-170.

West Indies Team Preview:

They have performed averagely this year and have won 2 of the 3 matches they played(They have won 1 and lost 1 in the last year also). Most of the scoring will be done by Dwayne Smith, William Perkins, and Kirk Edwards.

Tino Best and Sulieman Benn are their standout bowlers so far.

Probable 11:

R Jacobs(LHB), Dwayne Smith, Narsingh Deonarine(LHB), William Perkins,  Kirk Edwards, Brian Lara(c)(LHB), Tino Best,  Mahendra Nagamootoo(LHB), Sulieman Benn, R Austin(RAO), D Ramnarine(RAL),  

There are 3 Left-Handers in the top 6 of the Windies team so Yousuf Pathan is expected to bowl a good amount of overs again.

Kirk Edwards(RHB, 36 years) is playing regularly for Windward Island so he is will have more chance of scoring than the players who are playing after a long time.
