West Indies are looking to rebuild their team after big giants like Dwayne Bravo have retired and their first assignment towards building the team for the 2022 World Cup comes in the form of Pakistan. They already suffered a huge blow before even the commencement of tour as players like Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard ruled themselves out due to personal or injuries issues.
West Indies announced the squad of 15 members but will have a pool of 12 players to select from as Roston Chase, Mayers, and Cottrell are ruled out due to Covid-19 positive report. Nicholas Pooran will be leading this leading side and it will be interesting to see how he manages the team and himself as he had a horrendous 2021 year and the extra responsibility of captaincy might be too much for him.

Pakistan has been playing some high-class cricket ever since Saqlain Mushtaq replaced Misbah as coach and energy in Pakistan’s dressing room is easily visible. Pakistan is a really tough side to beat at home and even has never lost a T20I game at Karachi which easily shows their supremacy at home. They are coming off an excellent T20 World Cup campaign and Bangladesh tour and will look to continue in the same fashion.
Pakistan team follows the same pattern from ball one to last and they might look to try something new in this series as it is a 2nd string squad of West Indies and will be a great opportunity to give chances to youngsters like Shahnawaz Dahani and Usman Qadir. Pakistan won the last series at home against West Indies by 3-0 margin and let’s see if they can again provide the same scintillating action to fans.

PAK vs WI– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:
Pakistan is expected to win the match against West Indies
KhelTalk experts feel Pakistan will win against the West Indies. Pakistan is one of the toughest teams to beat at home and West Indies’ chances are even lesser after big players were ruled out and covid-19 hit their campaign. Pakistan has announced a big strong squad for this series and is looking to not give any chance to the visitors.
Pakistan has not lost a single T20I game at National Stadium and their record is likely to be maintained unless Nicholas Pooran and his brigade produce something special as Dasun Shanaka did in 2020 with his Srilankan team. We think Pakistan will win this match.
Popular Betting Odds For PAK vs. WI, 1st T20I, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman from West Indies – Darren Bravo (4.50 odds)
Darren Bravo is the only experienced batsman in the West Indian lineup and his form will define West Indies’ chances in this series. Bravo missed out in the West Indies T20 World Cup squad recently and a lot of pundits suggested that he could’ve played the anchor role in West Indies’ big-hitting lineup and things might have been different then. Bravo has no chance to redeem himself and grab this chance with both hands in absence of main players and stake his claim for next year’s T20 World Cup.
Top Batsman from Pakistan – Babar Azam (2.50 odds)
Babar Azam is a modern-day now and the captaincy responsibilities has brought the best out of Babar Azam as a batsman. He and Mohammad Rizwan are arguably the most dangerous duo at the top and their record is just unbelievable.
Karachi is his home turf in Pakistan Super League and knows the pitch in and out. Babar failed to deliver on Bangladesh’s tour and now will look to set the tone in the first match for Pakistan. He averages more than 50 in the last 10 matches and can give you good returns from this match.
Top Bowler from Pakistan – Shaheen Afridi (3.50 odds)
Shaheen Afridi has been toying with batters in the powerplay and has picked most wickets in the powerplay in 2021. Pitches here are not that ideal for fast bowlers but still, Shaheen exerts something out of it which makes him a special bowler and sets him apart from others.
He has been ruling cricket for the last 6 months and is probably the current best bowler of powerplay in the world. Afridi is a genuine wicket-taker and is going to be a mandatory pick for every match.
Top Bowler from West Indies– Oshane Thomas (4.00 odds)
Oshane Thomas is a big 6’6 foot giant from Jamaica who has been a terrorizing batsman since his debut against India in 2018. Thomas is a fast and furious customer and can trouble any batsman on any pitch. He exerts extra bounce from wickets which makes him a really threatening bowler to watch.
Although, his accuracy is his biggest weakness, and sometimes leaks big runs. Oshane is a genuine wicket-taker with some unbelievable physique and pace which makes him the pick for best bowler from West Indies.
