WI vs PAK Match Preview
Trent Bridge offers one of the best batting pitches and with best hitters of the cricket ball present in the Windies side, they must back themselves for a win. West Indies have one of the most dangerous batting attacks and seeing the way Trent Bridge has offered pitches lately they will be nice to reckon.
Pakistan’s first World Cup win against West Indies outside Asia came in 1999 while the teams didn’t face each other in 2003. It was an easy win for West Indies at home in the 2007 edition while Pakistan returned the favour with a 10-wicket drubbing of the Caribbean team in 2011.
Pakistan has struggled with consistency in their recent matches and their defeat at the hands of Afghanistan in the warm-ups was evidence of that. There’s no team other than Pakistan that has experienced as much a roller-coaster ride as them in the last few decades. Pakistan has shown some exciting periods of brilliance up until now. One thing which they’ve carried all along is the tag of being unpredictable.
- Andre Russell is the player to worry about for every team in the tournament and all teams will be closely looking at Pakistan bowlers & how they will counter him. But the question is, can they?
- In Shai Hope, they have found a much-needed anchor in their middle order which consists of big hitters, if Shai Hope continues his form and other batsmen play around him then believe it west indies will be a team to beat.
- Shimron Heitmeyer is the second-youngest in the West Indies squad but is assured of his place in Guyana’s cricketing history at 22. An Under-19 World Cup winning captain, Hetmyer showcased his array of hitting ability which he married with consistency when England came calling earlier this year in a series West Indies squared 2-2.
- Pakistan has a fully fit squad to choose from, with the team announcing 12 names from which the final eleven will be chosen. That list sees, Shoaib Malik, Shaheen Afridi and Abid Ali miss out, with Pakistan now needing to choose between three of Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Haris Sohail and Asif Ali.
- Harris Sohail is in good touch of late and I guess they will or they should play him at no.4 as he gives the Pak batting order much-needed stability.
- Windies line-up is tough to predict, with Shannon Gabriel the only bowler to play no part in the warm-up against New Zealand. With his knee heavily braced as West Indies trained the day before the game, he could be the man to miss out again.

WI vs PAK Dream11 Tips
- Nottingham seems to be overcast tomorrow so check the conditions and who is batting first and make team accordingly.
- For Example:- if the weather remains overcast as predicted and Pakistan bowl first then must take Mohammed Amir who can swing the ball and take early wickets.
- Similarly, ignore some top order batsmen who have problems facing Swing.
