Series: Afghanistan vs. West Indies
Venue: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
Date: November 6, 2019
Time: 2:00 p.m. IST
West Indies will look to start things afresh when they kick off their ODI series against Afghanistan with the first match at Lucknow. They had a disastrous home series against India during which they got whitewashed in all of the three formats. But this is a new-look West Indies side now. They have decided to move past the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and others and have given chance to young talents like Hayden Walsh Jr. and Brandon King. Both have made their names in domestic cricket and they fully deserved this call up.
Afghanistan, on the other hand, are coming into this series on the back of a fantastic tour of Bangladesh where they completely outplayed the hosts in a one-off Test match and, then, made the final of the Tri-Series involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. The Afghans would be looking to put up a strong show against West Indies now. However, the Caribbean team will be up for the challenge as well.
Bright and sunny weather conditions are in store for Wednesday. Conditions will be a little dry.
It is an afternoon game, meaning there won't be enough moisture on the surface and the pitch will rather assist the spinners. The openers could score big runs of they spend enough time
