Regardless, it's good to be playing a full series.
We always fear about the star bowler of the opposition but end up giving wickets to one of the lesser bowlers. I wouldn't be surprised if suddenly Andre Russel or Marlon Samuels becomes our chief tormentor with the ball.
As far as the pitch is concerned the choice is simple! We have to make a pitch in a way that enables us to take 20 wickets. That is currently impossible with our pace bowling resources alone so fast seaming tracks won't do the job. So the only other option is make a test pitch that provides assistance to our spinners and hope we win the toss and bat.
