Cricket betting Pakistan

World T20 Champions West Indies will have an eye on the rankings when they take on Pakistan in a three match T20 series in the UAE starting on Friday 23rd September. It’s not often that you find teams clashing in a three-match T20s which adds to the spice of the contest between two of the most talented short-format sides.

New captains…new challenges

Interestingly, both sides have new captains trying to build their own legacy. In Sarfraz Ahmed, the hosts have someone who loves being aggressive and in leading by example. He has already led them against England in T20 and would be looking to settle down on his combinations for the future. Under Mickey Arthur, the team has started nicely in Test matches so the focus for now would be on the shorter formats.

West Indies too have a new captain in Carlos Brathwaite. The swashbuckling all-rounder has already earned a name with his big hitting and is looking to take big strides with his captaincy too. Not a bad thought, considering the array of T20 talent at his disposal although the confusion around coaching staff is a distraction.

Clash of the specialists!

A look at any national T20 league would suggest a fair mix of West Indians and Pakistanis. This should give you a fair indication of how far ahead they are of competition when it comes to this format. The visitors may miss Chris Gayle but the series is sure to pan out as a clash of T20 specialists.
With Brathwaite, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Sarfraz, Khalid Latif, Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik and Sohail Tavir stacked up against each other, the cricket lovers in the desert nation are in for a lovely dessert!

Who will come out top?

Their current form and the World Champions tag make West Indies the favorite but don’t count out the hosts who may spring a surprise. Backing Pakistan to win the series isn’t a bad option!
