The 20th match of the Super50 Cup 2019-20 in the Group B will be played between Trinidad & Tobago and United States of America at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad.
The match starts at 1:30 PM local time (5:30 PM GMT) (11:00 PM IST).
The game can be viewed on Windies Cricket’s YouTube channel and on Fan Code in India.
The Trinidad & Tobago team started off the Super50 Cup 2019-20 with back to back big wins. However, on Wednesday, the West Indies Emerging Players Team got better of Trinidad with a close 10-run win. Batting first, the Emerging team posted 243 which turned out to be enough as the hosts ended up with only 233/9 in their 50 overs. They will now face the United States of America at the Brian Lara Stadium on Friday. The USA team lost all the three matches they played in the tournament thus far. Their recent most game was against Windward Islands where they fell 45 runs short of the target.
Tarouba will have to be lucky enough to not see any rain during the game on Friday. A thunderstorm is predicted between 12 PM and 3 PM local time. In all likelihood, we could have a delayed start to the game.
The Brian Lara Stadium has been on the slower side in this competition as even the targets around 230 are becoming tough to chase. In the three unaffected games this season, the batting first side recorded totals of 185, 261 and 225 at this venue. The totals of 261 and 225 were enough for comfortable wins by margins of 40+ runs. The target of 186 was seen chased down in the first game that too on the last ball of the match.
Average 1st inning score: 233 (Unaffected List A matches)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 10

The United States of America team has planned to give game time for most players ahead of the World Cup Challenge League. In this process, they even rested their skipper. We expect them to bring back a couple of big names including their skipper for the game against T&T looking at the batting failures in the last match.
The Trinidad and Tobago are expected to record their 3rd win in this competition.
