IND vs WI 3rd ODI Pitch Report
The Brian Lara Stadium is hosting its first game of this tour. Compared to the two-paced Barbados pitch, it is known to be a genuine wicket and greatly facilitates strokeplay. This pitch may be precisely what the Indian batting needs to get them out of trouble, as they are in dire need of a bailout option. India must have the edge with a classic Trinidad wicket in situ, and seamers of course throughout that brief new-ball session.
