Kensington Oval Barbados Pitch Report

It is a sporting surface with something in it for everyone. It is not a belter and we could expect a good fight between the bat and the ball. The wicket will have some slowishness in it and the batters will have to work hard for their runs at this venue.

Is Kensington Oval a batting or a bowling pitch?

As per the modern T20 standards, it is more of a bowling pitch as the run-scoring won’t be easy here and the surface is expected to get slow as the tournament progresses.

Do fast bowlers or spin bowlers get bowling assistance at Kensington Oval?

Fast bowlers can always make an impact with their skills on slow surfaces. They can use the hard lengths and pace variations to outfox the batters. However, the spinners are expected to get more help off the surface at this venue.
