The pitch at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium is a good wicket to bat on upfront. However, it deteriorates as the game progresses. Teams batting first get an advantage here.
New Zealand Legends
New Zealand Legends are playing their first edition of the Road Safety World Series and they are gradually improving on their performances. After facing a crushing defeat at the hands of South Africa Legends, the Ross Taylor-led side put on a completely opposite performance against Bangladesh Legends, beating them by eight wickets.
Ross Taylor, Jamie How, and Dean Brownlie were the performers with the bat. With the ball, Kyle Mills did the job as he picked two wickets. Although their game against India Legends was washed away, New Zealand Legends will walk in the match against West Indies Legends high on confidence.

West Indies Legends
Brian Lara-led West Indies Legends have put on dominating performances so far in the tournament. They have defeated England Legends and Bangladesh Legends. In their last game against England Legends, WI-L registered a comfortable win as they beat ENG-L by eight wickets.
Dwayne Smith has been the consistent performer for West Indies Legends with the bat. He has scored two half-centuries in the two innings he has played. In bowing, Krishmar Santokie and Sulieman Benn have chipped in consistently. William Perkins was also among the runs against England Legends.
