West Indies Women vs England Women Pitch Report
The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua, is an excellent batting venue. As the pitch has flattened and the outfield has gotten faster in recent years, we’ve seen a number of high-scoring games. Fast bowlers have done well at the venue, and spinners have also had success.
Because the pitch is conducive to bowling, it is recommended that at least four death bowlers bowl at the death and also bat in the top order. Making them captain or vice-captain could be an excellent way to maximise points and win grand leagues.
On matchday, the temperature is expected to be around 24°C, with 63% humidity and a wind speed of 10 km/hr. During the game, there is no chance of rain.
