Pakistan vs West Indies 2016 Series Predictions, Squad & Schedule

Pakistan vs west indies series 2016 Preview & Prediction

Pakistan vs West Indies 2016

Pak vs West Indies prediction is placed here. West Indies will look to continue their stellar T20 form this month, as they travel to UAE to play Pakistan in a three match T20 series. This will be followed by the same number of games in ODI and Test format.

Having won the world T20 earlier this year, they are the number one ranked team in the format. On the other hand, their adversaries are ranked at 7th place at the moment.

West Indies are in a terrific form as of now, having most recently defeated the highly prolific Indian side for the second time in recent months. Playing the Men in Blue at Lauderhill, they put on a target of 245 runs. The fresh faces in the side, namely Johnson Charles and Evin Lewis, played a spectacular innings for their side. The Indies side kept their composure while defending the target and managed to win the game by just a run.

Owing to a sensational batting performance, it was only natural for the above two players to find their way into the main team for the Pakistan tour in UAE. Even though the side is missing their best in class players like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, having the likes of Samuel Badree and Dwayne Bravo should fill the void.

Considering Pakistan’s performance, they last defeated England by nine wickets. However, that was their only t20 Match since their disastrous performance in the World T20. Needless to mention, the side needs a lot of exposure, especially with the new faces which are a part of the team.

Sarfaraz Ahmed has been asked to captain the side, which may be quite odd given that his captaincy experience in this format is only dictated by his sole match against England this month. Nonetheless, they do have a pretty talented squad with Sohail Tanvir and Wahab Riaz leading the charge of bowling.

The two teams last met in 2014, when West Indies won by 84 runs. Since then however, a lot has changed for both the teams.

Pakistan are a team who are on the path to reinvent themselves, while West Indies are looking to maintain their dominance in the format. This is surely going to be a high octane series. Pakistan vs West Indies 2016 cricket prediction is placed below.
