We are back in the deserts of UAE where the T20 world Champions West Indies will take on the Hosts Pakistan in 3 T20, 3 ODI, and 3 test matches. The series will start with the t20 series where the world champions will be quite tough to beat, but Hosts have prepared well, and that will be an epic contest between the two sides. The First match of the series will be played on this Friday. The game will be played at Dubai Cricket Stadium and will start at 9:00 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from Pakistan side who have done an excellent Job and ended the England tour in a blistering way to a nine-wicket victory and now with just a few changes they will play with West Indies. Umar Akmal is back in the side will improve the Lower middle order. Saad Nasim and Rumman Raees are the other two players that are given a chance in the team. As a whole Pakistan have a quite balanced and decent squad but still they are going to play against West Indies which include match winners so winning against them will be a big boost for Pakistan Young team. Pakistan has some quality bowlers but on wickets of Dubai and Sharjah, it will be a tough task to bowl here. Pakistan should rely on their batting as they have to forget about that they are not good chasers because whenever a team plays positive cricket, then he can chase any target. Pakistan has some great power hitting batsman especially in the top order which includes Sharjeel and Khalid Latif, and both are in excellent touch so their game performance will be quite remarkable to watch.
Coming towards the World Champions West Indies who have dropped few players from their side but still they have an excellent team and can beat any team at anywhere in the world. Chris Gayle, Andre Russel, and Lendl Simmons are not on the side, and that can cost them a lot. Overall they have some power hitters like Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard who are match-winners and can turn the game from any point. Carlos Braithwaite the young T20 captain whose performance will be key for them in this series. West Indies have two best spinners of the world which include Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree, and both are excellent in this format. So the match between the two sides will be epic.
Coming towards the stats and pitch, Pakistan and West Indies have played four games against each other with two wins each team. Pitch is a flat batting track, and there is no chance of Rain in Dubai.
