Pak vs West Indies Live Preview:
Pakistan will host West Indies in a 3-match T20I series that will kick off on the 13th of December. Pakistan are a top-quality side when it comes to the shortest of the game. They had a dream run in the T20 World Cup and recently whitewashed Bangladesh 3-0 last month.
West Indies, on the other hand, have a lot of concerns prior to the first T20I as Sheldon Cottrell, Roston Chase and Kyle Mayers have been ruled out of the T20 series due to covid positive. T20 specialists Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, and Shimron Hetmyer are also unavailable due to different reasons. It’s a great opportunity for the young lads to prove their mark. It will be interesting how Nicholas Pooran will lead the side in this series.
The abrupt withdrawal of New Zealand and England’s refusal to travel to these shores were a couple of setbacks for Pakistan a few months back. But they’ll be happy to welcome West Indies who become the second team after South Africa to play a series in Pakistan this year. The return of international cricket in Pakistan is a much-needed boost although it is against a depleted West Indies side, with Covid positive results for Sheldon Cottrell, Roston Chase and Kyle Mayers just before the series reducing the squad strength to 12 members.
Dwayne Bravo has retired, Chris Gayle isn’t part of the set up, Jason Holder has been rested, Fabian Allen and Obed McCoy are unavailable due to injuries while Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Andre Russell and Lendl Simmons pulled out due to personal reasons. With white-ball skipper Kieron Pollard also missing out due to an injury, the Nicholas Pooran-led T20I outfit is a relatively inexperienced one. That in itself isn’t such a bad thing considering West Indies are looking to move on from a disastrous 2021 T20 World Cup campaign. The injection of freshness gives them the opportunity to test the waters as part of the preparations for the next edition of the T20 World Cup which will be held in less than a year’s time in Australia.
