The second T20 game of the five-game series between India and the West Indies will be played on Sunday, August 6 at Providence Stadium in Guyana. After a heartbreaking narrow four-round loss in the series opener, the Indian team will be looking to bounce back in their second meeting. On the other hand, after winning the first game, the West Indies team wants to keep the same momentum to come out even stronger in this series. Let’s take a look at the pitch at Providence Stadium in Guyana ahead of the upcoming second T20 game between India and the West Indies.
Providence Stadium in Guyana is known for its balanced conditions. The playing field here supports both the batsmen and the bowlers. Unlike some of the sluggish players on the tour, Guyana have had high scoring games in the past, which bodes well for both teams in the second T20 game. Due to the conditions here and the green playing field, swing bowlers are expected to get help early on. However, the spinners have a chance to shine with slower rotation and grip on the surface. Aside from the bowlers, the batsmen are also expected to get help from this pitch. In such a situation, an exciting game between the two teams can be expected.
