If we look at the two teams, Pakistan and West Indies. There is no doubt that the men from Caribbean are the favorites for the upcoming T20 series. West Indies is one strong team in the shortest format cricket. This version suits their style of play.
Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite, Jonathan Charles and many other have attacking nature of play. They attack the opposition with the bat. There is a lot of strength in the T20 batting line of the West Indies.We all know that in a T20 game if one players shines with the bat, the team gets to a strong total. You don’t need multiple number of players performing with the bat. One can do the job. In the bowling you can say combination works.
West Indies has batters who can smash the ball hard and long. We have seen their batting stints in the past. They are the current world champions because of their batting. Their bowling is good but it is their batting which is mind blowing.
Now with such a strong batting line with multiple match winners, the men from the Caribbean are the favorites for the T20 series. They will play with a pretty straight forward game plan. Brathwaite is a new captain and hence he will take time to adjust.
There is no Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle in the side, which is a shame. Now Pakistan will have to move a mountain in order to win this T20 series. It will not be easy by any means. They have to show a lot of commitment to make West Indies fall. Pakistan T20 squad is good. They had a really good win against England. The morals of the players would be high. All they need is focus and commitment.
