Pakistan vs Canada Pitch Report

The pitch at the Nassau Cricket Stadium seems to have settled down a bit after the initial games that heavily favored the pacers. While swing and seam movement are still expected with the new ball, the bounce is predicted to be more even compared to previous matches. During the India vs Pakistan encounter, it looked like the par total while batting first should be anything above 150. However, it was India’s impeccable bowling that pulled off a miracle in New York. Both Pakistan and Canada have played one game each here.
