We are here for WI vs. PAK Today Match Prediction, 1st Test, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

Pakistan

Pakistan is coming off a confident T20I series win. Pakistan has been excellent in test matches lately. Especially the trio of Fawad Alam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Babar Azam has been scoring tons of runs. Fawad Alam made a comeback last year against England and has never looked back since then. He has scored a blistering century against New Zealand and South Africa this year and will be crucial for Pakistan in this series.

Pakistan’s main strength lies in the bowling lineup and eyes will be on Hasan Ali after his thundering form in the T20I series. He has picked 26 wickets in just 4 test matches in 2021. Pakistan will kick off their World Test Championship campaign through this series and this time hopes will be high on Babar & co. to make it to the WTC finals in 2023 after disappointment in the last edition

  • Pakistan last lost and test series against West Indies in 2000
  • Azhar Ali averages 58.14 in 2021 tests
  • Hasan Ali bowling average in 2021 is 13.88

Top Batsmen of Pakistan

  • Azhar Ali- 6579 runs at 43.28 average 
  • Babar Azam– 2169 runs at 42.53 average 
  • Mohammad Rizwan- 820 runs at 43.16

Top Bowler of Pakistan 

  • Yasir Shah- 235 wickets at 30.84 average 
  • Hasan Ali- 57 wickets at 22.05 average 
  • Mohammad Abbas- 85 wickets at 22.81 average

West Indies 

West Indies will lock horns with Pakistan after losing the T20I series. Even before the start of the series West Indies coach Phil Simmons has bashed his team for lack of match practice for the Test series. Kraigg Braithwaite is leading the series and pressure will be on them as against South Africa, they were comprehensively beaten on their home soil. 

West Indies are without their premier fast bowler Shanon Gabriel due to injury. West Indies played an intrasquad match before this series and Kraigg Braithwaite and Brooks were the stand out performers from that match. In the last test series against Pakistan, they were beaten 2-1 which led to a big media outrage back then. Let’s see if West Indies can take revenge for that loss and T20I series loss as well.

  • West Indies lost last series against South Africa 2-0
  • Jason Holder’s bowling average is 22.26 against Pakistan 
  • West Indies lost last series against Pakistan on Caribbean soil by 2-1 score

Weather Report

The weather is expected to be variable for this match. Scattered Thunderstorms are expected everyday. The T20I series was very badly affected due to rain and only one match could be completed. Sunshine will also be there at regular intervals but major scares are there of rain. Let’s see if we will finally see some real battle between bat and ball or the weather will again become the culprit.

  • Rain: 46%
  • Humidity 69%
  • Wind speed: 18-24 km/h.
  • Temperature-  24-30 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

Jamaica pitch is known for its pace and bounce and is expected to be like that. In T20Is pitches were very slow but as we shift from T20 to Test, conditions might be different. The 1st session will be crucial for both teams as we have seen in the past, the team who wins the 1st session is likely to dominate the match.

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

Pakistan  is expected to win the match against West Indies 

KhelTalk experts feel that Pakistan will win this match. West Indies are playing at their home turf but have been in bad form lately in tests. They were comprehensively beaten by South Africans in June this year. Their bowling was their biggest strength but the injury of Shanon Gabriel has left big boots to fill now.

On the other hand, Pakistan had a good year so far in tests. They have won series against South Africa and Zimbabwe so far. Their batting is really strong with the most batsmen in form and the resurgence of Hasan Ali in the bowling department makes them a more complete team. Pakistan is expected to win this match.

Top Batsman from Pakistan – Mohammad Rizwan (6.00 odds)

In the last couple of years, we have witnessed an incredible rise of Mohammad Rizwan in the international arena. He was always labeled as a talented batsman but the presence of Sarfaraz Ahmed always blocked his way into the Pakistani team. In the last couple of years, he has scored runs in almost every situation.

He scored incredible 90s in England and Australia but his maiden ton came last year against New Zealand in the 4th innings of a test match. He has been super consistent for the last year and will definitely give you good returns. He is our pick for the best batsman.

Top Batsman from West Indies – Shai Hope (4.75 odds)

Shai Hope is a 27-year-old elegant batsman from Barbados. He has not lived up to expectations so far in the longest format. He averages only 25 and has been very inconsistent. Hope averages more than 50 in ODIs but has been unsuccessful to replicate his form into the toughest format.

He is classy, Elegant, and has perfect technique but temperament is where lacks. This series is really important for him as he has been in bad form recently and this series can help him to rejuvenate his old form. 

Top Bowler from West Indies– Kemar Roach (3.50 odds)

Kemar Roach is a 33-year-old veteran from the West Indies. He has picked more than 200 wickets in tests and is very experienced. He averages 27.32 with the ball and will be playing against Pakistan after 10 long years. Responsibility will be on his shoulders to lead the bowling department with the new ball as Shanon Gabriel is injured.

Roach swings both ways and his stats on Caribbean wickets are incredible. He has picked 151 wickets here at an average of 21.96 and a mind-blowing strike rate of 45. He has been in good form lately and is our pick for best bowler from the West Indies.

Top Bowler from Pakistan – Hasan Ali (Odds- 3.25)

Hasan Ali has been in an incredible run of form lately in all formats. He made a comeback into the Pakistan team after a long-back injury and has been their best bowler since then. He has picked 25 wickets so far in just 4 matches.

Everyone knows what he can do but white ball but the world is yet to see his supremacy with the red ball. He swings both ways and is one of few bowlers in international cricket who can reverse swing with an old bowl. He can be very Lethal on bouncy tracks of West Indies and will be their biggest threat. He is our pick for best bowler from Pakistan.
