WI vs IND, 5th T20I Pitch Report:
The way the last game unfolded, it won’t be wrong to call the surface at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground a balanced one. Indian batters used the surface to collect runs in the first innings and then the bowlers were able to bundle up the West Indies lineup under 150 runs. The story for this game might be the same and the team winning the toss might again look to bat. The average first innings score at this venue in the last 5 T20 matches is 158 runs, however, the team batting first in this game might be able to score over 180 runs.
