WI vs PAK 2nd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of West Indies


WI Playing 11: West Indies will take on Pakistan in the second T20 here at Providence Stadium, Guyana. The first T20I was abandoned due to rain. With T20 World Cup not very far away, these matches become a crucial part of both the teams’ preparation. West Indies have a power packed batting line-up which has the experience of playing T20 cricket all around the world. If they find their range, opposition bowlers are likely to have a tough time. The hosts will back their star batting line-up to take the attack to the opposition. In the head-to-head record, Pakistan leads West Indies by a comfortable margin of 11-3.

West Indies will rely on their strong and deep batting line-up to carry them through. In the last match, the batting looked rusty on a slow wicket. But they are likely to get amongst the runs on a fresh wicket here. The focus will be on Chris Gayle as his form has been inconsistent lately. WI bowling seems to be settled with Dwayne Bravo being the most experienced player. Legspinner Hayden Walsh has been in good wicket taking form.
