Match Details:

The 30th match of the Super50 Cup 2019-20 will be the Group A game between Leeward Islands and Canada played at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts.

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.

Preview:

The Leeward Islands, who started the Super50 Cup 2019-20 edition with a hat-trick of wins, lost their next two games on the trot. However, a 6-wicket win against the defending champions Combined Campuses & Colleges put their campaign back on track. Despite the absence of Rahkeem Cornwall, the Leeward Islands are now placed at No.2 spot. They have a pretty good chance to top the Group A when they take on Canada team on Thursday. The Canada team has played as many as five matches in this season but won just one. They would need to win all the remaining three matches to have an outside chance of semi-final qualification.


Weather Condition/Report:

The Warner Park could be under the clouds throughout the evening and the play could be interrupted due to showers.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The season began with five consecutive 250+ scores by first batting team resulting in wins at the Warner Park. However, the recent matches broke that trend as targets of 244 and 208 getting chased down. Since there was three days gap since the last match, we could see big totals on Thursday.

Average 1st inning score: 264 (Unaffected games in Super50 2019/20)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 5

Rahkeem Cornwall is in India to be part of Afghanistan-West Indies Test match.
