Host West Indies and Pakistan face off in the 2nd T20I game of the series at Providence Stadium in Guyana on Saturday.

The series opener between West Indies and Pakistan was called-off after heavy showers lashed across the ground in Barbados. With three games to go, the home side will be looking to deliver a strong show with bat and ball in this fixture.

On the other hand, Pakistan bowled well in patches in the cancelled game played at Barbados. Captain Babar Azam will be hoping that the side can show consistency with the ball in hand in this contest.

Lendl Simmons suffered from a head injury and might sit on the sidelines for the second game of the T20I series. Andre Fletcher will come in as a replacement for Lendl Simmons for this fixture.

With Simmons ruled out for second game, Chris Gayle is expected to open the innings along with Evin Lewis. Andre Fletcher, Shimron Hetymer and Nicholas Pooran will make up the middle-order for West Indies. Captain Kieron Pollard and all-rounder Andre Russell will be keen to go berserk in the last five overs of the innings.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on right-arm medium pacers Jason Holder, Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo to make crucial breakthroughs. Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr and Akeal Hosein will need to keep a lid on the rate of scoring in the middle-overs for West Indies.

Pakistan Preview

The visitors included uncapped pacer Mohammad Wasim Jr. in place of Mohammad Hasnain for the opening game of the series. Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq also hinted that fringe players will be given more opportunities in this T20I series.

In the T20 format, Wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan and Captain Babar Azam have consistently produced notable scores for the side at the top of the innings. The team management will be hoping that opening pair can get the side off to a great start in the second game of the T20I series.

Sharjeel Khan has been included in the playing XI for the second game of the series. Left-hander has the ability to play spinners well in the middle-overs of the innings.
