Babar Azam has been a fulcrum of the Pakistan fur quite many times. He was in miraculous form in the T20 World Cup 2021 being among the leading run- songwriters. But he looked a laddie off-color on the stint of Bangladesh. But in home conditions, he’s anticipated to make hay and afflict the West Indies bowlers.
Shaheen Shah Afridi-Pakistan
Shaheen Shah Afridi has been miraculous for Pakistan over the last many times. In the T20 World Cup 2021, he rattled the Indian fur as well. He was brilliant in the stint of Bangladesh as well. However, West Indies batters would be in for a lot of trouble, If he finds his meter.
