ABU DHABI: Rampant Pakistan would be eyeing a whitewash against he Wold Champions of this format as they battle for the third T20 international at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Pakistan have been phenomenal and consistent with their performance. They have won all the three T20s played against top teams of this form of cricket.
First they beat World T20 runner up team England in their own den by a huge, nine-wicket margin. And now, they have floored the World beaters in UAE.
Green shirts have show real guts, as they rose from ashes (after going 4-0 down against England in ODI series) to winning four consecutive games since then.
They are already on top of Test Rankings. And, if they continue this performance, they would soon be at the top notch of shorter format too.
The most noticeable change Pakistan have made in their side after the WT20 disaster, is the captain Sarfraz Ahmed. This led brings life and energy to the team.
He leads from the front and has the tendency to take brave decisions on crunch moments. There are millions who want to see him as next ODI and Test captain for Pakistan
On the other side, West Indies have to pull themselves and have to put up the show they are famous for.
One cannot rule out Caribbean side from bouncing back harder after being pushed down. History speaks for them.
It would be interesting how the skipper Carlos Brathwaite moves his troops in today’s battle.
