The six games being played on the ground show that batting is the hardest job, and even if a batter stays in the middle for about 40-45 mins and plays around 30 deliveries, for him run-scoring is never the easiest job.

The bowlers have been finding swing and seam, going into the USA vs Ind clash, while the spinners are using their variations quite well. The average first innings score of the tournament has been just 107 in this T20 World Cup at the Nassau Stadium.

In six games, teams have an equal result while batting first or looking to chase a target, Even chasing 120, as a batting side, it becomes so tough to find the gaps, but the fielders have to be careful in not giving away any easy run.

The fast bowlers had an economy of 5.4 in this ground, before the USA vs Ind encounter, as the leg-spinners have been drilled around the ground.
