WI vs PAK MPL Prediction: 1st Test Match Predictions, Fantasy Tips, Playing 11 & More: The West Indies Cricket Board on Monday announced a 17-man squad for the two-match test series against Pakistan. In this team, fast bowler Chemar Holder and middle-order batsman Shamrah Brooks have returned. Apart from this, fast bowler Shannon Gabriel has been given time to get fit and he is not part of this team.
West Indies handed over the captaincy of the team for this home series to Craig Brathwaite. The series will begin on August 12 and the first match will be played at Sabina Park, Jamaica. Apart from this, the second match will also be played on the same ground, which will start on August 20. Before the test series, a four-match T20 series was played between Pakistan and West Indies, which Pakistan won 1-0. Three matches of this series had to be cancelled due to rain and bad weather.
Due to the geographical location of Kingston’s driest location, Sabina Park was previously one of the most difficult and fastest pitches in the West Indies. This means that turf was a boon to Windy’s high-arm tall bowlers at the time.
Until now, we have witnessed a large-scale metamorphosis of the lawn of Sabina Park in recent years. The surface is slower than before. Obviously, the turf helps the spin bowler and comes a little behind the bat, which bothers Batman.
At Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica, grass will die and the pitch will be trampled when cricket action at the venue resumes almost after two years. August-September 2019 was the last time when cricket was played at that venue.. Kingston hasn’t witnessed a transcendental cricket-style international match on its lawn.
Currently, the match will not be broadcasted live in India, but fans can watch the live-streaming on the FanCode app (subscription required). BT Sport will broadcast the match live in the UK and ESPN+ will broadcast the match live in the United States. In Pakistan, the series will air on Ten Sports.M
Both sides have played 52 test matches. Pakistan won 20 but 15 games ended in a draw. West Indies have 17 wins in this head-to-head battle.
