Kingston has good weather touching early 30s on the match day. Slight drizzle along with scattered rains are a possibility on the match day.
The ball is doing a lot in the first two overs when it is brand new and the batsmen may enjoy the pitch if they weather the storm early on. The average score in this pitch his 80-90 runs.
Batting first will be a safe option considering the results across the league as the batsmen tend to choke and falter in tense moments of the chase often.

They have good batting and bowling attacks but dependency on only a few players have hindered their results so far. Grenadine Divers have been very inconsistent and have more losses than wins so far.
