Kensington Oval Barbados Pitch Report

Kensington Oval is known for its pace and seam, ranking among the fastest tracks in the West Indies. Fast bowlers are likely to gain early assistance from the new ball, with notable seam movement expected. 

However, in the T20 World Cup 2024 matches we have seen the track slowing down with the progress of the game. Even after the initial stages, the batters might struggle to get going as the ball will not come onto the bat easily.

 The teams with strong bowling units will aim for their captains to win the toss and opt to bowl first due to the overcast conditions, which are expected to assist the pacers with significant movement both off the pitch and through the air.
