At Providence Stadium in Guyana on Sunday (August 1), the West Indies and Pakistan meet in the third T20I of the series.
Seven runs were the difference between winning and losing in Saturday’s second Twenty 20 under Babar Azam. With Azam’s 40-ball 51, the Men in Green managed to post 157-8 on the board after being put in to bat first. Having made 150 at the end of their innings, the hosts lost 4 wickets for a score of 150. For the visitors, Mohammad Hafeez bowled a spell of 4-1-6-1.
As the first T20I was washed out due to rain, Kieron Pollard & Co. will look to keep the series alive in the third match. Pakistan, on the other hand, would like to wrap up the series with a victory.
Both fast bowlers and spinners will be helped by a competitive match between bat and ball. Despite the early swings of the spacers, the batters will look to take full advantage of the powerplay restrictions.
