Preview:

The Tuesday match will decide whether Pakistan or the West Indies will go to the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20 2014 as the second-placed team from Group 2, after India. While Pakistan appears to be the favourite, the West Indies will try to retain its defending champion status.

More than that, who wins the toss will decide the result of this match, thank mere display of skills and batsmanship. Both squads stand equal chance to win.

West Indies coach Saqlain Mushtaq said, “I always tell my spinners that God gave us two eyes, use them,” and quickly added, “With one eye, judge your own strength and with the other, look at the weakness of the others. You ask who the best spinners are, the ICC rankings have given the answer — Narine and Badree. Tomorrow’s match will be won by the team with better self-belief.”

Prediction: If Pakistan wins toss and opts for fielding, then there is scope for its win unless the West Indies grabs the ball and surprise the opponent batsmen.

Teams:

Pakistan: Ahmed Shehzad, Kamran Akmal (wk), Mohammad Hafeez (capt), Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Sobaih Maqsood, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Zulfiqar Babar, Bilawal Bhatti, Mohammad Talha, Sharjeel Khan, Junaid Khan.

West Indies: Dwayne Smith, Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy (capt), Andre Russell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree, Krishmar Santokie, Ravi Rampaul, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Sheldon Cottrell.
