WI vs PAK 3rd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of West Indies
Updated on: Aug 1, 2021 4:58 pm IST
WI Playing 11: West Indies will face Pakistan in the third T20I here at Providence Stadium, Guyana. The hosts will look to level the series after losing the last match. West Indies bowled well but the number of dot balls cost them the match. Despite having some of the game’s best power hitters in the line-up, they were left to do too much in the end. With T20 World Cup not far away, this will be the last opportunity for them to test their bench strength. Pakistan leads the head-to-head record over West Indies in T20Is by a huge margin of 12-3.
- Evin Lewis was retired hurt in the last match. He might be rested here which could mean a return for Lendl Simmons.
- Andre Russell can return for this important match in place of Romario Shepherd.

Nicholas Pooran (wk)
Kieron Pollard (C)
Romario Shepherd/ Andre Russell

West Indies batters struggled for timing on a slow pitch. 47 dot balls in 20 overs clearly cost them the match. The openers will be relied to give a quick start while Chris Gayle will look to get back into some form. Nicholas Pooran’s form with the bat was a big positive for WI from the last match. Bowlers were impressive at the death with Dwayne Bravo and Jason Holder restricting Pakistan to a below-par score. Hayden Walsh and Akeal Hosein will be crucial on this slow pitch.
