The National Cricket Stadium in Grenada has been a blessing for batsmen so far, with the wicket being a belter. But as the innings progresses, there’s a tendency for the pitch to slow down a bit.
With no rain expected during the game, spin bowlers are expected to have their fair share of success in the middle overs of the game.
