Here at InsideSport, we look at the 5 most interesting match-ups ahead of West Indies-Pakistan which are likely to bind users for a gripping watch.
Mohammad Rizwan vs Akeal Hosein
Coming after a blazing form 176 runs in the three T20Is against England, he averaged 88 in his recent stint. His bat roared ferociously in England and it would be interesting to see his clash against the in-form Hosein who foxed Australia’s batsmen in their recent stint. It would be interesting to see if left-arm orthodox could give Pakistan batsmen a tough time.
WI vs PAK 1st T20I: Babar Azam vs Hayden Walsh
Pakistan skipper is a man of big occasions and surprised the hosts (England) on their overseas tour earlier this month. It would be exciting to see how batting great takes on Hayden Walsh- the right-arm leg break who is in hot form.
Nicholas Pooran vs Mohammad Hasnain
The right-arm Pakistan pacer could potentially deploy the bowling-friendly pitch in Barbados and give a tough time Pooran. The spectators would be eager to watch how Pooran resists hit power-hitting abilities against Hasnain.
Chris Gayle vs Shadab Khan
The face-off between Chris Gayle and Shadab Khan would be exciting to see how Windies batting mainstay undertakes spin bowled at him. The watch is always gripping to see Chris Gayle grappling spin attack that is often his weakness.
WI vs PAK 1st T20I: Kieron Pollard vs Imad Wasim
Windies skipper, much like the Chris Gayle has been constantly troubled by spinners. The head-to-head between Imad Wasim- left-arm orthodox and Pollard would be fascinating to see how Pollard resorts to defense and tempts his big hits.
