UAE vs West Indies Pitch Report
The course in Sharjah is generally on the slower side and slow and spin bowlers get a lot of help from it. It is a relatively flat and dry wicket which can be good for batting out early on. But as the game progresses, the pitch could become a bit difficult to hit.
The average first-inning score at this venue is 226 and second-batting teams have not always been successful in successfully chasing targets. So it will be ideal for the pitch-winning captain to bat first at this track and get enough runs on the board to knock the opposition out of the game.
United Arab Emirates Vs. West Indies
The weather in Sharjah on Tuesday will be absolutely scorching with temperatures expected to hit 41 degrees Celsius. However, as night falls, temperatures will drop as low as 29 degrees Celsius.
