Pitches on West Indian soil behave differently than the slower ones at UAE which may go in favor of West Indian team. At the same time, UAE grounds helped the spinners and also the boundaries were very big that took advantage of aggressive hitting from West Indian batsmen.
Both these teams have played only four completed T20 internationals since last year’s World T20. Pakistan won all these matches while West Indies have lost three out of the four. Pakistan have recently completed a very successful PSL season which gave them back many players for this series. Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad are back to the team after their impressive performance during PSL 2017.
We have seen too many changes in West Indian squads recently. Such wild changes make it difficult to judge and predict about their performance. One can explain the plight of this team by the fact that the team that played their last T20 included just two players of the team that won them T20 World Cup six months ago.
Pitch and conditions: The Kensington Oval surface has regularly produced high-scoring T20 internationals. All completed CPL games last season produced at least one total above 170. There is a slight chance of rain in the afternoon, although it is not expected to prevent a full contest.
