Pakistan

Pakistan is trying new combinations in this series to find an ideal XI. They picked Sharjeel Khan and Mohammad Wasim Jr in the last match. Babar Azam will now bat at no.3 to provide solidity to the team. Although 1st T20I was washed-out but Pakistan will be happy with their bowling effort as they restricted West Indies to 85 runs in 9 over the game.

Pakistan’s main strength is in the bowling department and this series is crucial for out-of-form players like Shaheen Afridi and Shadab Khan. Barbados’ pitch was spin-friendly but now the series will move to Guyana where the pitch might be better. It will be interesting if they make changes to their side according to new conditions or not

West Indies 

West Indies batting lineup struggled against Pakistani spinners in 2nd T20II. After putting up to bat, they only managed to score 85 runs in 9 overs. They would be thankful for the rain which helped them to escape from humiliation. Barbados pitch was not ideal for West Indies as they like the ball to come on the bat. The series will now move to Guyana where West Indies batters will feel more comfortable.

West Indies is a settled unit but there is always injury scare around their players. In the last match, Sheldon Cottrell suffered an injury that forced Jason Holder to come into the team. Their players have played three back-to-back series so far, it will be interesting to see if they rest their players as all players will be again in action in leagues like CPL, The Hundred, and IPL.

  • West Indies win 80 percent of their matches when Andre Russell, Gayle, Bravo, and Pollard playing XI.

Weather Report

The weather will be cloudy, with some showers expected. The Series already has been cut short to 4 matches and after the last match was washed out, it only remains 3 match series only. Both teams will not want a rain-affected encounter. The humidity will be at its peak as it is an afternoon game.

Pitch Report

Kensington Oval pitch was under the scanner for its slow nature and again the Guyana pitch is naturally a slow track. The average score is only 130 runs, so again we can expect a low-scoring thriller. Pakistan will be more happier side to play on this track but playing on slow surfaces will help West Indies to prepare for WT20

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 were the favorite for the series but slow pitches might spoil their chances. In the 1st T20, Pakistani spinners were all over the West Indies and Guyana is again expected to be a slow surface. Pakistan is trying new combinations and they gave chance to Wasim and he looked solid on debut. Most West Indies batters are in terrific form, and all players are match-winners but on a slowish pitch Pakistan will have the upper hand any day. We expect Pakistan to win.

Top Batsman from Pakistan – Babar Azam

Babar Azam will be batting at number 3 in this series. Guyana pitch is expected to be slow and players like Babar Azam are tailor-made for such situations. He is brilliant against spin and rotates strike very well. The world number 2 ranked T20I batsman Babar Azam is the 2nd highest run-getter in 2021 T20Is with 472 runs. However he will be now batting at 3 number but wherever he bats, he will give big returns. He is our pick for the best batsman.

Top Batsman from West Indies – Evin Lewis 

Evin Lewis got out cheaply in 1st T20I but he will fancy his chance on the Guyana pitch. He can take on Mohammad Hafeez if he comes to bowling in the powerplay. He had a good 2021 so far and is expected to be a starter in the West Indies team for WT20. This is West Indies’ last T20I series before WT20, so Evin Lewis would want to ensure his spot with strong performance.

Top Bowler from West Indies– Hayden Walsh 

Hayden Walsh will be West Indies’ trump card on Guyana’s pitch. He has picked 15 wickets in 6 T20Is this year and the economy is even less than 7. Walsh’s variations are really tough to pick, and slow pitch makes him unplayable. Pakistan batters are good players of spin, but 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.

Top Bowler from Pakistan – Hasan Ali

Hasan Ali is Pakistan’s best bowler in T20I. He is their leading wicket-taker in 2021 with 16 wickets. In the last match, he again showed his class and only conceded 11 runs from 2 overs in a 9 overs game. His comeback after the injury has been remarkable, he has developed new skills and can use his variations to perfection on slow Guyana pitches. He is our pick for best bowler from Pakistan.
