KENSINGTON OVAL STADIUM, BARBADOS, WEST INDIES

KENSINGTON OVAL STADIUM (BARBADOS)

The Kensington Oval is a stadium located to the west of the capital city Bridgetown on the island of Barbados.

KENSINGTON OVAL STADIUM (BARBADOS) Pitch Report

History says that this field gifts batsmen a lot. Batsmen can easily put a huge score in scoreboard. Along with England’s 903 and Australia’s 701, there are a lot of high team totals in Oval ground. We can say, the Oval never disappoint batsmen. It generally becomes easier to bat on in the Barbados Cricket Stadium as the game progresses but it can’t be termed as a perfectly flat pitch.  The records suggest bowling first here would be a better decision hence any Captain who wins the toss must do the same.

KENSINGTON OVAL STADIUM (BARBADOS) Pitch Report

Test Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

In the first innings, the pitch is ideal for batsmen, and thus the team who wins the toss in the Kennington Oval Cricket ground typically chooses to bat for a high score. The fast bowlers do not get much support. But the previous day’s decay improved the situation in three and fourth innings. Spin bowlers start achieving sharp turns and batsmen begin to struggle.

If there are no county games on the ground for several months, the surface may sprout a bit of grass to support pacers. The pitch is reputed to be fastest track. But county games are always played in Kennington, so pitch surface is always lacks of grass.

If weather will be overcast then fast bowlers will get help and it will become difficult for batsmen.

ODI Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

The pitch in Barbados is generally sporting and teams favour batting first although this also has a history of backfiring. In recent times the surface has become easier to bat on as the game wears on but not exactly a flat track. The ODI records of the Barbados Cricket Stadium say that the teams batting first won 6 times whereas the teams batting 2nd won 11 times. Although the pitch here at Barbados is a good one and most teams would prefer bowling first here, this decision could backfire as well.
