The first of the four-match T20 series between West Indies and Pakistan was canceled due to rain. The second match will be played on July 31 at the Providence Stadium, Guyana.
West Indies v Pakistan Preview:
In the first match we saw the West Indies team lose the toss, batted 9 overs and the game gave some overs due to rain. We see Landy Simmons and Even Lewis in the opening of the West Indies team. One sees Chris Gayle down. In the middle order were wearing necklaces, Andrew Russell, Kiran Pollard, Shimron Hetmyer. In that case, the Pakistani bowlers bowled well. Hasan Ali took 2 wickets for 11 runs in 2 overs. Mohammad Hafeez took a wicket with 12 runs in the over. The rest of the bowlers did well too and beat the West Indies by 85 runs. The Pakistanis could not bat due to rain. So the game was declared abandoned. In that case, the second match is going to be glorious.
This is going to be the first T20 match at this venue since 2019. England scored 191 runs at the ground during the 2010 T20 World Cup. So hopefully these PC batsmen will be able to take advantage. This piece will run 160 plus.
If the captain of the two wins the toss, he decides to bowl. Because both of them love to chase runs.
The current weather in Guyana is not very good. There is a possibility of rain in this match too. Still we hope to see the full match.
