Pakistan

Pakistan is coming into this series on the back of a series loss against England. Pakistan’s middle-order conundrum seems to be never-ending. In the last series, they tried Sohaib Maqsood at number 3, but he failed to grab his chance. Coming into this series, Misbah has already talked about their struggles in middle-order, and they will look to fill these spots in this series against West Indies.

The eyes will be on Shaheen Afridi, he seems to burn out and looking exhausted at the moment. It will be interesting if management will rest him for few matches. Many experts have suggested Babar Azam to at-bat no.3 and let Fakhar Zaman bat at his favorable opening spot to solve Pakistan’s middle-order problems, it will be interesting to see where Babar bats. This series will be vital for some fringe players like Azam Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, and Hasnain, who will look to seal their spot through strong performance.

West Indies 

West Indies are reigning WT20 Champions right now and have been performing tremendously in 2021. In the last T20I series against Australia, they rattled Australia 4-1 comprehensively.  Their star batsman and captain Kieron Pollard have returned after missing the last T20I series. It will boost the Caribbean team massively.

West Indies’ side looks settled with options of plenty in the batting order. The most positive sign for the West Indies has been their spinners. Hayden Walsh picked 12 wickets in the last series at an average of 11.67 and looked unplayable on these wickets. West Indies are coming at the back of the ODI series loss, so there is some work to do for them. They will look to continue their form in the T20 format and keep their momentum going.

Pitch Report

Kensington Oval pitch is under the radar for its behavior in the last series against Australia. It was very two-paced and slow. Even Kieron Pollard criticized openly in a post-match interview. Spinners are likely to get some turn and bounce again, but strong winds seam bowlers will also enjoy the early passage of play. Captains might look to bat first as the pitch might become slow in 2nd innings.

WI vs PAK– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

West Indies  is expected to win the match against Pakistan

KhelTalk experts feel that the West Indies will win this match. West Indies is the favourite of this series. Given their recent record and the form of their players, they can easily win against this Pakistani side. On the other hand, Pakistan is under tremendous pressure after losing another T20I series against England. Most West Indies batters are in terrific form, and all players are match winners. They can win this encounter against depleted Pakistan if they play to their potential.

Top Batsman from Pakistan – Babar Azam (Odds- 2.87)

Babar Azam is arguably the best T20 batsman at the moment. In the last series, he scored 118 runs, including a blistering knock of 85 in 1st T20I. Babar Azam is the 2nd highest run-getter in 2021 T20Is with 472 runs. He is brilliant against spinners, and on slow wickets of Barbados, he will be the biggest threat for West Indies. It will be interesting to see if he opens the innings or bats at 3 wherever he bats, he will give big returns. Azam is one of the modern greats, and you can’t keep him out of your team.

Top Batsman from West Indies – Evin Lewis (Odds- 3.60)

The Caribbean opener is West Indies’ top scorer in 2021. His strike rate is 175+ in 2021. He scored smashing 79 runs in the last T20I against Australia, including nine humongous sixes. He is effective against spin and always looks to put pressure on spinners. He has scored 2 hundred in T20Is, and if he gets set, then he can give you big returns. He is our pick for the best batsman.

Top Bowler from Pakistan – Haris Rauf (Odds- 3.75)

Haris Rauf is fast and furious. He has been an integral part of Babar’s team in T20I’s. He is criticized for leaking runs, but he is a genuine wicket-taker. He is 2nd leading wicket-taker for Pakistan in 2021 with 12 wickets. In the last series, he was dropped from the side for the last match, but he is likely to make a comeback after Shaheen’s recent struggles. He can leak runs sometimes, but he is a real threat with his pace and bounce. Haris Rauf is our pick for best bowler from Pakistan.

Top Bowler from West Indies– Hayden Walsh (Odds- 3.60)

Hayden Walsh has picked 15 wickets in 5 T20Is this year. His economy is even less than 7. Hayden Walsh is a real threat on these slow surfaces. Walsh’s variations are really tough to pick, and Aussies batters looked blank against him in the last series. Pakistan batters are more good players of spin but definitely, he can be a real threat because of his unpredictability. He is in tremendous form, and Pakistani players have never played him before, he will be a crucial player on these slow surfaces. He is our pick for best bowler from the West Indies.
