Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica Pitch Report

The pitch at Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica, generally supports both batters and bowlers throughout a Test match. On the first day, the pitch assists the faster bowlers with extra bounce and movement off the surface. As the match progresses into the second and third days, the pitch becomes easier to bat on, allowing the batters to play their shots more freely. However, as the game enters the last two days, the pitch starts to wear down and deteriorate, favouring the spin bowlers. The spinners can extract, turn and bounce from the surface, making scoring runs challenging for the batters.
