Host Pakistan will face West Indies in the third and final T20I of the three-match series at the National Stadium in Karachi on Thursday.

The home team have secured an unassailable 2-0 lead after winning the first two matches by 63 and nine runs, respectively. Captain Babar Azam will be hoping that the side can continue their unbeaten run against West Inides. On the other hand, West Indies showed significant improvement in this game. Captain Nicholas Pooran will be hoping tha the side can break their winless streak.

Pakistan Preview

After securing a series triumph in a rather comfortable manner, Pakistan will enter the third T20I with high confidence.

The management will be hoping that the players will conclude the series in the same manner as they’ve performed in the first two matches.

Since Thursday’s match will have no impact on the outcome of the series, the Men-in-Green are likely to test their bench strength and give some key players much-needed rest.

Leg-spinner Usman Qadir, pacers Shahnawaz Dahani, Mohammad Hasnain and Khushdil Shah are likely to come in place of Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan and Fakhar Zaman.

However, one concern for the management will be once again the form of captain Babar Azam who failed in the second T20I as well. That failure meant that for the third time in T20Is, the right-hander went six innings without scoring a half-century.

The coaching staff will be hopeful that the star batter will regain his form ahead of the all-important three-match ODI series.

In the batting department, the Green Caps will be relying on the likes of in-form wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, exciting Haider Ali, experienced Iftikhar Ahmed and hard-hitting Asif Ali, Khushdil Shah to score the bulk of the runs

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Mohammad Wasim Jr, Hasnain, Dahani along with the spin duo of Qadir and Mohammad Nawaz to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.

Pakistan Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Hasnain, Usman Qadir, Khushdil Shah and Shahnawaz Dahani.

West Indies Preview

Despite suffering a series defeat, West Indies will come in the third T20I feeling good about themselves, largely because of the fact that most players are inexperienced but yet they managed to push the home team in the second fixture where they suffered a narrow defeat.

In the batting department, the Caribbean giants will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Nicholas Pooran, in-form Brandon King, wicketkeeper-batter Shai Hope and hard-hitting Rovman Powell to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Oshane Thomas, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith along with the spin duo of Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein to claim timely breakthroughs and restrict the opposition to a manageable total.

Venue Details

Pakistan have a formdiable record at National Cricket Stadium in Karachi. The Grreen Shirts have won all their T20I matches played at Karachi.

Toss: To Bowl

Both the teams will be looking to win the toss, bat first and post a score in excess of 180 runs on the board. The first two mattches have been won by side batting first.

First two matches went exactly how many would’ve predicted where a full-strength Pakistan side proved too good for a young and inexperienced West Indies team.

Even though the second fixture went all the way down to the wire and there are some changes expected for the third T20I, the home team are still likely to be too strong for the opposition at the same venue.

Expect Pakistan to secure another win and complete the series sweep.
