ABU DHABI: Pakistan has won the toss and elected to field first against West Indies in a 3rd and last Twenty 20 International (T20I) being played here on Tuesday.
Pakistan’s limited over sides were in shambles when they went to England but a win in the fifth ODI followed by victory in the one-off T20I has helped them resurface.
Against World T20 champions West Indies, Pakistan have been nothing less than the best. An unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series against the visitors is a good sign for the side which is trying to rise back up in the 20-over and 50-over formats.
As far as West Indies are concerned, they can blame the weather for their dip in form but bad batting strategy — focusing more on boundary scoring and less on singles and doubles — has hit them hard.
Their young captain Carlos Brathwaite is under a lot of pressure to take the world champions forward without the services of Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Andre Russell.
