DOMINICA: Pakistan have golden chance to register a rare series win against West Indies in the Caribbean when the two sides meet in the 3rd Test at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica.
The match is scheduled to start 10:00 local (14:00 GMT | 19:00 PST).
There must be an emotional vibe going around across the team, which might help Pakistan bring out of them.
However, Pakistan crumbled in a tame surrender in Bridgetown on the fifth day, and West Indies leveled the series. As such, it is a different narrative that grips Dominica: can Pakistan finally win a Test series in the Caribbean?
West Indies are basking in the glow of one of their sweetest wins in the recent past, coming back repeatedly to overpower, and ultimately blow away, a team many expected to be too strong for them.
Shannon Gabriel ripped through Pakistan on the final day. Several West Indies batsmen also made contributions under pressure, and they have now won two of their last three Tests against Pakistan.
However, no one knows which West Indies side will turn up at Windsor Park. Pakistan will be well aware of that if they’ve finally recovered from the sucker-punch of what happened on the final day at the Kensington Oval.
Mickey Arthur’s side, however, largely dominated the second Test, and were just a cracked pitch and frayed nerves away from taking an unassailable lead.
Since West Indies have announced their unchanged squad for the second Test as well, Pakistan might look to add another spinner to the side, as the Barbados pitch offers more spin.
