West Indies will host Pakistan in the first of the five-match T20I series between the women’s teams on Wednesday. The match is set to be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Earlier, in the day the A-sides of both West Indies Women and Pakistan Women will meet each other at the same venue. With two sides studded with experienced players up against one another, the match is likely to be a thrilling affair.
Given that teams trying to chase at the venue do not have an impressive record, the captain winning the toss should look to bat first. Moreover, this is a venue where an even contest is expected between the bat and ball as it does have something for the bowlers but at the same time it isn’t entirely a bowlers’ paradise. So anything above 7 runs an over could turn out to be a challenging score. While the teams look pretty much even-steven, picking the hosts with a slight bit of advantage in the first match given they would know exactly what to expect from the surface.
