Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter

Kyle Mayers:

The opening batter has been in good touch in the shortest format of the game, which will be a plus for West Indies whether they bat first or second. He has provided his side with some good starts in the recent times, and would look to do the same.

Probable best bowler

Alzarri Joseph:

Alzarri Joseph will be the pick of the bowlers, as the pitch is pacer friendly. He would look to take advantage early in the game so as to restrict the opposition from scoring runs.
