Teams Comparison

Pakistan has informed the top-order batting line with the inclusion of Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abid Ali and Babar Azam. Usually, in ODI’s Fakhar Zaman and Imam opens batting innings for Pakistan. Opening pair has been consistent in providing the team with a solid start to set a substantial total crossing 300 in recent times and start innings with six or more runs per over.

Fakhar has best batting averages of 52.83 and Imam have been very consistent with 60.04 batting averages in ODI that’s best for. Babar Azam has scored three consecutive centuries against WI in during the last ODI series between Pak and WI in April 2017 and has a batting average of 80+ against WI.

Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Gayle, and Darren Bravo are the top order batting line for West Indies. Gayle usually opens the batting for WI innings in all formats with Lewis/Hetmyer. Gayle is best known for his opening partnership and flying start to score a massive total. But Chris Gayle doesn’t have a good record against Pakistan bowling as he hardly crosses fifty against Pakistan.

Darren Bravo can do a better job for the WI batting line in the middle as he loves to absorb pressure and play long innings till the end of the game to finish 50 overs. Shoaib Malik, Haris Sohail, and Sarfaraz Ahmed have made Pakistan middle-order very strong in the recent two-three years.

Shoaib Malik is the most experienced batsman in the Pakistan team right now with plenty of experience and best known as ODI specialist. Haris Sohail and Sarfaraz both build a game with a steady run rate, especially in the middle of the game and keep maintaining run rate and partnership.

Shai Hope, Fabian Allen, Nicholas Pooran and Jason Holder are the middle order batting line for WI although WI skipper Holder is a batting all-rounder but very useful in the middle of the game. WI has a very consistent wicket-keeper batsman Shai Hope who builds partnership slowly and steadily in the middle to score big totals.

Although WI this middle order batting line is not very competitive as per Pakistan especially in chasing totals. Mohammad Hafeez, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, and Imad Wasim are a strength for Pakistan lower-order batting line, and best bowlers at the time.

Imad and Hafeez batting all-round performances have been proven backbone for Pak hitting especially in the 15 overs ODI to push run rate at an average of 8 runs per over and to capitalise innings to score maximum provided that opening start and game stability. Carlos Brathwaite and Andre Russell are just two bowling all-rounders and powerful hitters in the WI team who have destroyed opposition bowling and scored ten runs per over to gain victory for their team.

Brathwaite and Russell both are beneficial prospects for the WI batting line in the lower order who smash every ball out of the park mercilessly. Pakistan has the best bowling side right now the world with pacers, medium pacers, wrist spin, off-break, and leg-break bowler.

Hassan Ali, Junaid Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, and Mohammad Husnain are the pace battery to Pakistan bowling strength. Junaid Khan and Hasan Ali are pretty experienced bowlers who have destroyed several times the opposition batting line.

Shaheen Afridi, Faheem and Mohammad Husnain are PSL star bowling with leading wickets. In Spin bowling, Pakistan has plenty of options including Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, and occasional Haris Sohail.

The medium pace bowler Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas who bowl well with a variety of pace deliveries. WI spin bowling has good options, especially Ashley  Nurse, Chris Gayle, and Nicholas Pooran but not competitive as compared to Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, and Hafeez.
