This match will be the first one of the tour in Sharjah. A slow, turning wicket, playing to Pakistan’s strengths is expected. The weather will be quite hot, with a high of 36-degree centigrade, and no rain is forecast. West Indies are likely to pick a similar XI to the one that played their last ODI, the tri-series final against Australia in Barbados.
The absence of Andre Fletcher will necessitate a change at the top, however, with either Evin Lewis or Jonathan Carter opening with Johnson Charles. Pakistan captain Azhar Ali, who was not in the T20I squad, will slot in at the top of the order alongside Sharjeel Khan.
Apart from that, the top six of the batting line-up should look the same as the one that featured in the T20I series, while Mohammad Nawaz and Imad Wasim are likely to keep their places as the lead spinners. There is less certainty about the fast bowling department, but Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz are probably safe bets.
