West Indies v Pakistan 1st Test – Team News

  • Kraigg Brathwaite – The opener skippered the side against South Africa but will be looking to add more runs after struggling to build on his starts in that series.
  • Shai Hope – Hope has a big role to play if West Indies are going to post some big scores in this fixture. He has been excellent in recent ODIs against Sri Lanka but couldn’t quite kick on in the South Africa Tests.
  • Yasir Shah – The Pakistan spinner has been out with a knee injury but could return once assessed ahead of this clash. He could have an impact as the pitch wears.
  • Mohammad Rizwan – He has been in excellent form in the white-ball game and can fire important runs in the middle-order of this Test side.
  • Babar Azam – The talented batsman across all formats will again lead Pakistan in this Test series. He has been seeing it well and will have another big role to play.

West Indies v Pakistan 1st Test – Betting Tips and Predictions

West Indies have been strong in recent white-ball games but haven’t had the same impact in the longest format.

Pakistan recently beat Zimbabwe and South Africa in red-ball cricket.

Back Pakistan for the Win

Pakistan are looking a strong outfit at present and can carry their form into this series.

They have a good mix of experience and youth, especially in their bowling ranks, can have many different areas covered.

The visitors also looked strong in the only T20I we saw leading into this and are clearly a squad playing with plenty of confidence.

While wins over Zimbabwe were expected, their success against South Africa was impressive.

There price of 2.38 with bet365 looks a good bet.

Fawad Alam is a Value Bet

Batsman Fawad Alam has hit tons against New Zealand, South Africa and Zimbabwe recently.

He looks a value selection in the top Pakistan batsman market if getting selected for this.

Babar Azam is always a popular choice but his shorter odds do mean others are normally much bigger prices than they might be.

Alam’s price of 7.0 with 1xBet looks generous.

A First-Innings Century to be Scored

High scores are possible at this venue and the weather conditions look good for batting.

Backing a players from either side to score a ton in the first-innings looks appealing at 1.92 with 20Bet, which is also higher than a lot of other bookies.

The West Indies openers will know this venue and the Pakistan batsmen look in decent form themselves.
