The 21st match of the Super50 Cup 2019-20 in the Group A between Canada and Jamaica will be played at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts.
The match starts at 1:30 AM 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.
Both Jamaica and Canada made a similar start to the tournament with consecutive defeats. However, both have won their respective last game, both being against the defending champions Combined Campuses and Colleges. The two teams will now clash off at the Warner Park in St Kitts on Saturday. Jamaica had big losses against Barbados and Leeward Islands before a 97-run big win against CCC. Canada too suffered batting failures in first two matches but Nitish Kumar’s century saved their day last time.
The skies over the Warner Park will be covered by the clouds throughout the match but we might not see any rain.
The Warner Park hosted five unaffected matches in this Super50 Cup. In all the five matches, the team batting first posted 250+ totals and ended up on the winning side in all those five games. The trend is expected to continue on Saturday in yet another day/night fixture at this venue.
Average 1st inning score: 280 (Unaffected games in Super50 2019/20)
