Recent form of West Indies and Pakistan
Though the two nations will come into the contest casting aside their previous forms as with the upcoming series they step into the second edition of the World Test Championship.
However, in terms of Test matches, Pakistan can possibly emerge favourites as they whitewashed Zimbabwe in their 2-match Test series held overseas (April-May). Moreso, the visitors managed to win clinically with a buffer of runs and even an innings to spare in both their matches against Zimbabwe.
The hosts might have down shoulders who lost to South Africa by huge margins in the 2-match Test series (June) they played against the Proteas in their home ground.
