Pakistan vs West Indies Betting Tips

Pakistan will face West Indies in the first T20I of the three-match series at the National Stadium in Karachi on Monday.

The series will be a great opportunity for the teams to start their preparation for the next year’s International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia.

Pakistan will be coming in the series as one of the most in-form teams in the world after producing outstanding performances in the recently concluded ICC T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) followed by a three-nil series sweep against Bangladesh.

Even though the Men-in-Green were outdone by the eventual champions Australia in the semifinals of the mega-event, their performance was right up there and it was proof that they are one of the teams to beat in the format.

West Indies will be coming in this series with low confidence after a disappointing campaign in the ICC T20 World Cup.

Those results proved to be the end of some veterans’ careers and the team is clearly now in the rebuilding phase ahead of the next year’s mega-event.

Pakistan Form and Team News

The series will be an interesting opportunity for the Green Caps to evaluate their bench strength after resting notable senior pros including veteran all-rounders Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim and pacer Hasan Ali.

In their absence, the team’s batting will be heavily relying on in-form captain Babar Azam, star wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, dangerous Fakhar Zaman, young Haider Ali, veteran Iftikhar Ahmed and explosive Asif Ali to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the pace attack consisting of star left-armer Shaheen Shah Afridi, genuine fast-bowler Haris Rauf and youngsters Mohammad Wasim, Shahnawaz Dahani along with the spin trio of vice-captain Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz and Usman Qadir to restrict the opposition by claiming timely breakthroughs.

West Indies Form and Team News

The visitors have suffered a major blow as their regular captain Kieron Pollard has been ruled out of the series after failing to recover from a hamstring injury.

In his absence, the team will be heavily relying on the likes of stand-in captain Nicholas Pooran, experienced Darren Bravo, explosive top-order batter Brandon King, wicketkeeper Shai Hope and all-rounder Roston Chase to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Odean Smith, Kyle Mayers along with the spin trio of Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein and Chase to restrict the home team to a manageable total.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams are coming in the series with one eye on the next year’s ICC T20 World Cup.

On paper and as per the recent form, Pakistan look like a far settled and in-form team compared to West Indies who are clearly in a transitional phase.

Therefore, the prediction is for the Men-in-Green to secure a positive result to go 1-0 up in the three-match contest.

Tip 1: Pakistan’s dominant record against West Indies in the T20 format

Both teams have competed 18 times in the history of T20Is where the Men-in-Green have a far superior record with 12 wins compared to Windies’ three victories whereas three matches ended without a result. Given their dominant head to-head record against West Indies, we can expect Pakistan to overcome West Indies in this opening [email protected].

Tip 2: Shadab Khan to continue his excellent form in the T20 format.

Since May 2021, Leg-spinner has been a consistent performer for Pakistan in the t20 format. With 17 wickets at an economy rate of 6.74, Shadab Khan is currently leading wicket-taker for Green Shirts in the T20 format. Given his excellent performances in the recently T20I World Cup, we can expect leg-spinner Shadab Khan to take one wicket or more against West [email protected].



Expect Pakistan to beat West Indies and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.
