The third T20I of the four-match series between West Indies and Pakistan will be played on Sunday. The venue remains unchanged. The first T20I was washed out and the second game was also interrupted by rain. So, rain remains a concern for both teams. Pakistan is ahead in the series, having won the second match and will look to get an unassailable lead while West Indies will look to bounce back.
After the first game was washed out, the second T20I turned out to be a good game even after rain interrupted during the match. West Indies and Pakistan went neck to neck but Pakistan sneaked a win with their good bowling performance. Mohammad Hafeez gave them a perfect start with the bowl with his economical spell. West Indies, however, fought back as Nicholas Pooran scored a brisk half-century but unfortunately could not steer his team over the line.
There will be not much of a difference concerning the conditions. We can expect another good contest between two good teams of the shortest format. You can't score a lot of points in the Fantasy game as it is expected to be another average scoring match. Picking bowlers can earn you good points. For the batting department, players like Pooran, Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan will be good choices.
