There could be some showers at the Brian Lara Stadium in the morning but no rain is expected during the evening match.

The Brian Lara Stadium didn’t particularly provide help to bowlers but the slowness didn’t allow the batsmen to go for big shots freely. There was a hint of double paced nature with some balls stopping when pitched. Another over 170 can be a winning total for the teams batting first.
