Warner Park Stadium T20 records: Basseterre will be hosting an international match after more than 30 months tomorrow.
The second T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of West Indies will be played in Basseterre tomorrow as the venue will welcome back international cricket after more than 30 months. The last international match at the Warner Park was a West Indies vs Ireland T20I before the COVID-19 pandemic.
West Indies, who’ve won all the 10 T20Is played at this venue, have a praiseworthy record on the back of six victories and two losses in the last 13 years.
India, on the other hand, will be playing their first-ever T20I here on Monday. Having played an ODI and Test match in St Kitts during their 2006 tour of West Indies, India will be playing a match here after 16 years. Readers must note that India are yet to win a match at the Warner Park.
