Barbados ODI Records and Highest Innings Total: Kensington Oval will host an ODI after just over 12 months.
The second leg of the 2022 New Zealand tour of the West Indies will kick off in less than two hours from now in Bridgetown. A three-match ODI series in Barbados will follow a three-match T20I series in Jamaica.
Kensington Oval, which had last hosted a West Indies-England Test form international five months ago, will host an ODI after just over 12 months.
Having been part of 36 of the 42 ODIs played at this venue over the years, the West Indies have won 16 and lost 20 not to have an encouraging record here.
New Zealand, on the other hand, has played a lone Bridgetown ODI to date. Having finished on the losing side, it is worth noting that the Black Caps’ only ODI appearance came in the first ODI at this venue 37 years ago. So don’t expect any away players in the below mentioned lists of the best ODI players at Kensington Oval.
