The West Indies Tri-Nations Series moves to St. Kitts this week, with Australia and South Africa opening play at Warner Park Saturday 11 June.
The conditions in the stadium are considerably different than those in Guyana, which has coaches rethinking their lineups.
“Yeah, it’s not the Gabba on day one, is it?” Australia coach Justin Langer said. “In a shield game. There’s not much grass on it but I think it’s something typical of what we see in the West Indies. It actually feels a lot harder than Guyana so it might skid out a bit more for the quicks. It might get through a bit more. I’m not sure if it’ll spin as much as Guyana.”
West Indies return to play Monday 13 June versus Australia.
