WI vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 1st T20I Match, Pakistan tour of West Indies, 2021.

West Indies and Pakistan will play in the 1st T20I on 28th July 2021. We will cover West Indies vs Pakistan Dream11 Prediction.

WI vs PAK 1st T20I Match Preview

West Indies:

West Indies are the defending T20I champions, and they are having a great time as they defeated Australia 4-1 in the recent series. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis have proved to be a good opening partnership, and they are likely to continue in this series. At No.3, Chris Gayle is in brilliant form. The middle-order is the most significant advantage of the team with players like Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, and Fabian Allen.

The bowling also looks good as they have a lot of pacers and medium-fast bowlers. Fidel Edwards, Obed McCoy, Sheldon Cottrell, and Oshane Thomas form the team’s pace attack. The specialist spin duo Walsh-Akeal will play a crucial role in the middle overs. Dwayne Bravo has been bowling economically and also picking up wickets in the death overs.

West Indies has a perfect chance of dominating the Pakistan team and show the world why they are the world champions by winning the series.

Pakistan:

Pakistan had a tough time in the tour with England as they lost both ODI and T20I series. They would be low on confidence, but they have enough firepower to compete with mighty Windies. The opening pair, Babar and Rizwan, have been the backbone of the batting unit, and if they get out early, Pakistan has struggled to post a big total.

Sohaib Maqsood was tried at No.3, but he has not given the desired results. They have good players like Fakhar Zaman, Mohammed Hafeez, and Imad Wasim, but they have failed to build the innings. The bowling unit looks very strong, especially the pace attack of the team. Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, and Haris Rauf are the crucial wicket-takers of the group. The spinners, Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim, have also contributed whenever it was required.

Pakistan might be low on confidence, but they would be hoping to make a comeback by winning against the defending champions.
