India are just flying high in another ICC World Tournament in the league phase.

After leading Group A in the points table, they joined Group 1 and they sealed their first outing as well against Afghanistan.

In the cold for a long, Surya Kumar Yadav’s bat finally belted a good score against Afghanistan when the team needed him the most, Kuldeep Yadav got a match in the tournament and many more positives for India in the previous match.

India played a big half of their journey so far on a slow wicket. The wicket was as slow as the average first innings score was just 108 in this World Cup. The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium is also known for its slow pitches.

Before the Australia-Bangladesh match on Thursday night, Antigua was known for being one of the lowest-scoring venues in this T20 World Cup. The average first innings score there was under 100, with the winning team in the first innings averaging 122 for five. Despite this, India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour noted that the team had played on pitches with even worse conditions.

Below is the pitch report of Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and the Weather forecast of Antigua for IND vs BAN:

Pitch Report of Sir Vivian Richards Stadium

The stadium is one of the few venues that benefits every type of player, whether batter, pacer, or spinner. Historically, Antigua has provided early assistance to pacers with the new ball. Additionally, as the pitch grips the ball, spinners are expected to find favorable conditions throughout both innings.

However, batters will likely find it easier to score once they have gauged the pitch’s behavior during the initial overs of the innings.

According to AccuWeather, daytime temperatures are expected to range between 30°C and 36°C. The forecast includes a chance of isolated morning thunderstorms, with a 40% probability of precipitation and a 24% likelihood of thunderstorms. Additionally, dense cloud cover is anticipated throughout the day.

Given these predictions, it is unlikely that the match will proceed without interruptions. Fans hoping for a rain-free game may be disappointed. However, a favorable aspect of Caribbean venues is that rain showers tend to be brief, potentially minimizing delays
