Here’s the pitch report of the Queen’s Park Oval:

The last set of ODIs played on the Queens Park Oval pitch occurred in 2019, therefore there hasn’t been much recent ODI cricket played there. In general, the pitch is favourable for hitting. The outfield is quick and the track bounces evenly, allowing the batter to time his swing for a better boundary range. It will be a high scoring contest, just like the 1st ODI.
