The fourth and final game of the T20I series between the West Indies and Pakistan will be played on August 3rd. The Providence Stadium in Guyana will host the last game in the series. Two of the three games have been washed out so far as the rain continues to spoil the game throughout the series.
In the first game, only nine overs were possible before the rain set in. Fans saw a competition thriller in the second game when Pakistan beat the West Indies in seven runs. The third T20I was washed out after 1.2 overs and the guests lead the series with a 1-0 lead.
Since there is only one game left in the series, everything can be won in the last game. Pakistan will have a lot of confidence as they were impressive in the second game. Seasoned players Mohammad Hafeez and Babar Azam took the lead to give the team the lead in the series.
The Pakistani bowlers also kept their nerve when they defended a total of 158 against a strong West India attack lineup. The hosts, however, were good with the ball in the final stages of the first inning when Jason Holder picked up four wickets.
Dwayne Bravo bowled brilliantly on the death, but the West Indies batsmen failed to campaign. Nicholas Pooran was her standout performer, but couldn’t stand across the line on his side. The West Indies need a win or they’ll pass the streak to Babar’s men.
Game: West Indies v Pakistan, 4th T20I
Date and Time: August 03, Tuesday 8:30 p.m. IST
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
With two of the three games washed out by rain, all eyes will be on the weather. The temperature is between 24 and 29 degrees Celsius throughout the day. There is a chance of rain and the game may have rain interruptions.
The field of play at Providence Stadium in Guyana is on the slower side. There is a distinct twist on the surface that supports the spinners from both sides. The field of play slows down a bit as the day progresses and fans may see bowlers using lots of slower balls.
Predicted Game XIs
In the last game, Evin Lewis was excluded and Andre Russell replaced him in the XI. We may see the same XI in the final T20I. The bowlers have done a good job so far and it will be up to the batsmen to step up. The West Indies will aim to level the series in the final game.
XI play: Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein
Pakistan was brilliant in the second T20I. All players fired together and helped the team to take the lead in the series. Shaheen Shah Afridi was spared for the third T20I and Haris Rauf replaced him in the XI. Don’t expect Pakistan to make changes to their side for the last T20I. Pakistan wants to seal the series with a win in the fourth T20I.
XI play: Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman, Sohaib Maqsood, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jr., Haris Rauf, Usman Qadir
Both teams have a strong striking unit. The power hitters on both sides will make for an exciting final game in the series. Pakistan has been good so far and the West Indies must do their best to level the series. If you look at the field conditions, you can assume that Pakistan will seal the streak with a win in the last game.
