West Indies vs Pakistan 1st T20I Match Prediction. Pakistan and West Indies are ready to lock horns in the first game of the four-match T20I series.
The Caribbean unit must be high on confidence after beating Australia 4-1 within the five-match T20I series. Pakistan, on the opposite hand, is coming off five defeats in their last six international matches.
Babar Azam and Co got to get their act together. Barring the sport against England in Nottingham where they won, the lads in Green looked out of sorts. The visitors will want to form amends at the earliest.

The venue in Barbados recently hosted the three-match ODI series between Australia and West Indies and therefore the track wasn’t helpful for the batters.

There are chances of rain around 11 AM within the morning and hence, there might be a brief delay.

Babar Azam– Pakistan
Babar Azam has been in decent enough sort of late. within the T20I series against the Brits, he started with a knock of 85 at the Trent Bridge. Although he managed only 22 and 11 within the next two matches, he didn’t look out of sorts. Against the Caribbean team, the 26-year-old has notched 403 runs from 10 matches at a mean of 57.57 with a top score of an unbeaten 97 in Karachi.
