After the magnificent performance, Pakistan has already the t20 series by winning the first two twenty/20 matches at Dubai (DSC) from West Indies. West Indies scored 115 runs in the first match and Pakistan chased the 116 runs target very easily by 9 wickets and 34 balls remaining.
In the second game, Pakistan batted first and scored 160 runs with four wickets down. Imad Wasim from Pakistan cricket team took five wickets in the first match and one in the second match. Sohail Tanvir took two wickets in the first match and three in the second match. Hasan Ali took the same as Tanvir. Now if Pakistan wins today’s match too then it will be a mighty blow for Pakistan.

Abu Dhabi, with its larger dimensions, will provide a different challenge to the batsmen. Pakistan’s batsmen scampered through for plenty of twos in the smaller Dubai outfield, which could continue. West Indies’ six-hitting ability and adaptability will be tested. The nature of the pitch is unlikely to be too dissimilar from the first two T20Is.
With the series gone, West Indies may hand Rovman Powell a debut, bringing him in for Nicholas Pooran, who has scores of 5 and 4 in his first two T20Is. West Indies may also rejig their misfiring top order.
Malik has been one of Pakistan’s most consistent T20 performers. In his last 16 T20I innings, Malik has failed to register a double-digit score just once. Malik’s experience and fielding prowess have also helped Pakistan in their dramatic limited-overs revival.
West Indies’ middle order, which includes Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, and Carlos Brathwaite, is arguably the best in the world. Bravo resurrected West Indies’ innings in the first T20 with a 54-ball 55. But for them to be at their destructive best, West Indies’ top order has to set a base from where the middle order can attack effectively.
