Sir Viv Richards Stadium, Antigua pitch report

The stadium is a favourable venue for every player, whether they are a batter, pacer, or spinner. Over the past few years, Antigua has helped to pacers in the early parts with the new ball. Moreover, as the ball eventually grips onto the pitch, spinners will get to enjoy bowling across both innings. Meanwhile, the batters also step up their game once they get to test the pitch behaviour during the initial overs.
