Match: Trinbago vs. St. Lucia
Venue: Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad
Date and time: September 05, 2020, at 7.30 PM IST
Preview: We have entered the final stage of the Caribbean T20 League and are only 4 games away from the semi-finals. Trinbago and St. Lucia enter this match in comfortable positions as both of them have secured a place in the knockout rounds, but it will still be an interesting match as St. Lucia look to score more points in the league table and secure a favorable draw in the semi-finals.
Pitch and Weather Conditions: Dark and gloomy weather is predicted in Tarouba this weekend, with a 70% chance of rain. We expect rain to have a say in the match, but we’re still hoping for a result. The Brian Lara stadium pitch has improved considerably over the course of the tournament and now has a more consistent pace and bounce. The average scores have been in the range of 160-180 runs in the recent games. Due to the dry nature of the pitch, the spinners are bound to have the upper hand.
