Pakistan eye to seal T20 series against West Indies


PORT OF SPAIN, APR 01, (DNA) -Following the success in the first two games of the four-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series, Pakistan will aim to seal the series when they take on hosts West Indies in the third game at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain today (Saturday).

Pakistan came up with a commendable performance in the first T20I to beat West Indies convincingly by 6 wickets, while the second T20I too saw another praiseworthy performance from the visitors to drub the hosts once again by a slender margin of 3 runs and maintain their position in the driver’s seat in the series, as they now stand a chance to win the series.

West Indies, meanwhile, did fail to put up a stellar show in the first fixture, but did well enough to show some resilience in the second game, only to be denied a win by just 3 runs. They will be hungry for a couple of wins in the next games, and Pakistan know that well enough.

The match is once again being contested in Port of Spain, where the fast bowlers have traditionally done well. Therefore, it won’t be a surprise if the teams opt to move in with a bowling-heavy side.
