Weather and Pitch Report:
Rain could interrupt the game, Only one Twenty20 International has been played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy; India scored 190 for 6 and easily defended their total against West Indies in 2022. While a new Tarouba pitch will favor the batters, a worn one may favor the bowlers. Thursday looks bleak, with a 40% probability of rain, according to the forecast.
