PAKISTAN TEAM– Pakistan’s high hopes of recovering up this much-needed victory after the loss in World Cup opener match on Sunday where their final warm-up match against Bangladesh was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
So they came into this World Cup game after having lost in their last ten official one-day matches that recently completed.
- Coach: Mickey Arthur
- Captain: Sarfaraz Ahmed
The Pakistan team needs to deliver the best bowling spirit in this match against the West Indies. Pakistan managed to win only 2 out of 14 ODI fixtures in this year, giving a very poor statement in the cricket history but the strength of the opposition is also to be noted.
Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam would definitely add to any batting line-up and considered the first-named player to top score at Trent Bridge.
WEST INDIES TEAM-
Admittedly, talking about the WI, they do seem to mean business at this tournament, with politics put to one side for a change and all their IPL stars available.
Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Andre Russell and Shai Hope can always be destructive with the bat in hand, with the first-named legend Chris Gayle surely showing the same skills like the IPL matches.
- Coach: Floyd Reifer
- Captain: Jason Holder
The win against New Zealand has surely given confidence to the squad because Chris Gayle was not at the centre of all the action so there is plenty more to come when he does hit form, while the likes of Shai Hope, Jason Holder and Andre Russell all looked in excellent form.
PREDICTED PLAYING XI PAKISTAN
Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Amir, Shoaib Malik, Shabad Khan, Imam-ul-Haq, Haris Sohail, Babar Azam, Ais Ali, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hafeez.
PREDICTED PLAYING XI WEST INDIES
Jasen Holder, Chris Gayle, Nicolas Pooran, Andre Russell, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Fabian Allen, Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell
FANTASY POWER 11 MATCH PREDICTIONS-
Pakistan enters this match as favorites to win the game and this clearly means overcoming a miserable 10-match losing era. Though their form has been poor, largely due to their bowlers but this does not bode well when playing the extra ordinary West Indian batting line-up. Already the pitch is in batting personnel favor. The only one thing in favour for Pakistan coming into this game is their recent record against the West Indies where Pakistan won five of their last six meetings almost two years back.
Not to forget, this is a different West Indian team now with some of their amazing players back in the squad and the likes of Chris Gayle and Andre Russell are capable of making the difference to inspire them to victory in what should be a high-scoring affair.
