Pakistan who were considered as favourites to win the first Test match lost that game by a small margin of 1 wicket. By losing the first Test match the Men in Green have lost the advantage of entering WTC 2021-23 final easily. They will look to put their best foot forward to make a comeback by working upon their strengths while West Indies as usual will be unpredictable as dark horses in the upcoming Test match.
West Indies have also proven that they have enough skills on board earlier in the year during Bangladesh series and now against Pakistan as well. The 2nd Test match is also expected to be in the similar lines of being a thrilling contest like the previous Test match between West Indies and Pakistan.
