Apart from the two teams, the pitch at the Kensington Oval, Barbados takes the centre stage as well. The pitches throughout the T20 WC 2024 have come under scrutiny, so fans expect a quality surface when the Aussies collide with Oman.

The stadium hosted the 3rd match of the tournament between Oman and Namibia, which was a low-scoring contest. Oman scored a meagre 109, and Namibia, too, were restricted at the same score, thus forcing a Super-Over.

However, in the second game that took place at the venue between England and Scotland, the Scottish side enjoyed batting on this surface, scoring 90 runs in 10 overs, before rain halted the momentum.

The spinners will get plenty of assistance from the surface, as witnessed in the first encounter. It was also evident yesterday, when Scotland found it tough to attack finger spinner, Moeen Ali. Anything in the region of 140-150 should be a good total on this tricky surface.

Toss winning captain will look to bowl first on this surface, considering their is a rain-threat looming large on this contest.
