WI vs PAK Betting Tips

  • Lendl Simmons top scored for West Indies in their 4-1 IT20 series win over Australia earlier this month. He is an excellent bet for West Indies’ leading run scorer in this opening IT20. Hayden Walsh enjoyed a fantastic IT20 and ODI series against Australia. He is a solid choice as West Indies top wicket taker in this match.
  • Babar Azam hit 85 in the first IT20 against England 2 weeks ago. Opening the batting, he is a good tip for Pakistan’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, all-rounder Shadab Khan took 5 wickets across the 3 IT20s against England. The leg-spinner is our recommendation for Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • Nicholas Pooran kept wicket for West Indies during the short format series win over Australia. He was also the stand-in captain with Kieron Pollard out injured. Mohammad Rizwan had the gloves for Pakistan against England and top scored across both teams in the series. We are backing Rizwan as the top wicket-keeper in this opener.

West Indies vs Pakistan 1st T20 Prediction & Betting Tips

West Indies and Pakistan begin their 4-match IT20 series in Barbados on Wednesday late morning. The series was originally scheduled to be 5 matches but due to West Indies and Australia’s ODI series overrunning, 1 game was cancelled from the IT20 fixtures. Read on as we preview this game. This match gets underway at the Kensington Oval at 10:00 local time.

West Indies are peaking as a very strong IT20 side just in time for their defence of the T20 World Cup. Any side who beats Australia 4-1 without their captain is a team to be taken very seriously.

Pakistan are a very good IT20 team and did not embarrass themselves in the 2-1 series defeat against a very strong England side. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are a fantastic opening pair.

WI vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

Both teams are equally comfortable in chasing or setting a target in this format. We expect both captains to choose to insert the opposition in this game.

WI vs PAK Pitch Report

The pitch came in for criticism during the ODI series with Australia over the last week with both teams finding high scoring tough. Spinners will enjoy the pitch with totals approaching 200 very unlikely.

Weather Report

There’s a strong chance of showers during the hours of play with highs of 29 degrees in Bridgetown.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

The hosts will be pleased to be led by captain Kieron Pollard in this format again and his return boosts an already confident side. They will also benefit from playing 3 ODIs at this venue against Australia already and should have a good reading of the pitch.

WI Key Players

  • Lendl Simmons- West Indies’ top run scorer in the series against Australia is comfortable anywhere in the top 4 of this batting order. He has 9 half-centuries in IT20s.
  • Hayden Walsh- the spin bowler has picked up wickets in every game against Australia. He took 12 in 5 IT20s and 7 in 3 ODIs.
  • Sheldon Cottrell- the fast bowler has become an integral part of the white ball West Indies side. He played in all but 1 of the games against Australia, taking 8 wickets.

WI Team Form

West Indies are a very strong team in this format and bounced back from their 3-2 defeat to South Africa last month with a convincing 4-1 win over Australia.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Andre Fletcher, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Fabian Allen, Hayden Walsh, Obed McCoy, Sheldon Cottrell

WI vs PAK Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Mohammad Rizwan (9.5) and Nicholas Pooran (8.5) will be our wicket-keepers. Rizwan is in excellent form with the bat.

  • Batsmen

    Babar Azam (10), Chris Gayle (9.5) and Lendl Simmons (9) are our batsmen. All 3 come into this series with recent big scores in this format.

  • All-rounders

    Fabian Allen (9) and Shadab Khan (9) will be our all-rounders. Both are capable of changing the momentum of the game with both bat and ball.

  • Bowlers

    Hayden Walsh (9), Shaheen Afrid (9), Hasan Ali (9) and Obed McCoy (8.5) are our bowlers. Walsh caused the Australia batsmen problems throughout their tour of the Caribbean.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Hayden Walsh will be captain, Mohammad Rizwan his deputy

WI vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Babar Azam, Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons

  • All Rounder:Fabian Allen, Shadab Khan

  • Wicket Keeper:Mohammad Rizwan, Nicholas Pooran

  • Bowler:Hayden Walsh, Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Obed McCoy

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

PAK Team News

Losing to England in a white ball series in England is no disgrace and Pakistan certainly impressed in the opening IT20 when they posted 232-6 on the way to a 31 run win. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan regularly set strong platforms at the top of the order with the bat. 

PAK Key Players

  • Babar Azam- the multi-format batsman was in characteristically good form in England hitting scores of 158 and 85 across the ODI and IT20 series.
  • Mohammad Rizwan- often goes under the radar with Babar Azam taking the limelight but Rizwan scored 250 runs across the final 4 games of the England tour.
  • Shaheen Afridi- only took 6 wickets across 6 games in England but we expect to see Shaheen respond with a greater number of dismissals in the Caribbean.

PAK Team Form

Pakistan are typically referred to as an inconsistent side in any format of the game but have been playing good quality IT20 cricket for many years now.

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Sohaib Maqsood, Mohammad Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Usman Qadir, Mohammad Hasnain

🏆 West Indies vs Pakistan Prediction

Low scoring games are always entertaining and, based on the Australia ODI series, this game should follow a similar pattern. We are predicting a tight match with the Pakistan opening batting pair potentially the key to deciding the game. Overall, we expect to see a home win in this opening IT20.
