Here we are again for the second t20 match of the series where the struggling World Champions will play for the survival on the show against the Dazzling Green shirts. Pakistan has won the first match by nine wickets, and now they are leading the series 1-0. The second game will be played at Dubai International Stadium, and the event will start at 9:00 PM Pakistan Standard time. Another victory will give Pakistan a series victory against the world Champions.
Starting from Pakistan who was at the moment world no 7 in ICC T20 ranking but the way played against the World Champions was Outstanding. They outclassed West Indies in all three departments, and West Indies had no clue what they were doing. Five wickets from Imad Wasim totally destroyed the hopes of West Indies of winning this match, and then an excellent 50 from Baber Azam took Pakistan to winning the position. Pakistan got a comfortable victory but still a lot of work to do as they can’t take the 2-time world champion team easy in this format. West Indies batsman can bounce back and as a team, they are a most unpredictable team in this format after Pakistan and have the ability to surprise the opposition. Pakistan have to use spinners much on this ground as the contribution of spinners can help much here. Sarfaraz needs to put confidence on Shoaib Malik and try to use him as a bowler also. Muhammad Amir in place of Hassan Ali will make the bowling much stronger here. Pakistan should go with an aggressive approach in the series as they are already 1-0 in the series and if they attack the opposition from the start they have a better chance of winning the series.
Coming towards the West Indies who were looking totally clueless against Pakistani bowling and then their fielding and bowling were also not up to the mark. Most of the batsman tried to play against the spin and lost their wickets against Imad Wasim in the power play they lost their five important batsmen. They need to read the pitch instead of just playing slog shots. Bravo and Pollard have to play a crucial role in the series as both are seniors and most experienced player of this format. Narine wasn’t effective much, and he needs to bowl at right line and length.
The pitch will be turning, and there will be a lot of turn for the spinners. Batting second will be easy as the dew factor is involved here. There is no chance of rain here.
