The West End Park International Cricket Stadium is known for producing moderate totals. On the first day of the tournament, the green cover on the pitch slowed the pace on the ball. This ensured the batting was little difficult as only 83 runs were posted by the side batting first. We could see a big score if the same pitch is used on Sunday as well.
