Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai Weather Forecast, Pitch Conditions & Rain Chances:
We have just got the first finalist of the ICC World T20I 2016 with England qualifying after defeating New Zealand. The second semifinal is just around the corner as well where India will be playing against West Indies.
Both the sides are in good form and they have players who can demolish the opponent single-handedly on their day. Chris Gayle has done that for West Indies in this very tournament in their opening match against England while Virat Kohli has done that for India in the last match against Australia. So, it is going to be more of a battle of nerves and whoever holds them better is going to end up on top.
No matter how good the teams play, pitch always plays an important role in the final outcome of the game. We have seen many good sides faltering only due to the nature of the wicket even in this particular tournament as well. So, let’s take a look at how the wicket is expected to play in Mumbai on 31st March when India will be playing against West Indies in the semifinal of World T20I 2016.
India vs West Indies 2nd Semifinal at Wankhede Stadium Pitch Report:
Mumbai has proved to be an oasis throughout this World T20I event. Batsmen were made to struggle by tough wickets at almost all other venues in the tournament, but the wicket at Wankhede Stadium at Mumbai just allowed them to be themselves and play their game freely.
Three games have been played so far on this venue in the tournament and on 2 occasions the side batting first scored in excess of 200 and once it was chased down successfully as well. So, it is expected to play like that again and we can expect a high scoring game on Thursday.
The par score in the all-important semifinal is expected to be 180-185.
