Pakistan returned to their self-destructive ways as West Indies completed a 37-run victory in the second One-Day International at the Guyana National Stadium on Tuesday.
Solid contributions by the Bravo brothers, Darren and Dwayne, boosted the West Indies batting effort after they had gotten off to the worst possible start when giant left-arm fast bowler Mohammed Irfan had Chris Gayle caught at the wicket in the first over of the day.
Two days after demolishing the hosts by 126 runs, the visitors folded for 195 off 47.5 overs in reply to the Caribbean side’s total of 232 for eight after they were put in on a pitch expected to offer considerable assistance to the bowlers following the previous day’s torrential rain.
Watch this space for latest updates and match report of the 2nd ODI match between Pakistan and West Indies (PAK and WI) in Guyana on 16th July.
Pakistan started the Windies tour in style with Shahid Afridi single handily ruining the party for the hosts in the first ODI in Guyana.
Save for first 100 odd minutes in the first ODI, West Indies looked hapless against Pakistan in all departments. They restricted Pakistan to a modest total but it, in hindsight, turned out to be too much.
The recent bilateral series between these two teams have been one-sided affairs in favour of Pakistan. In their last series, in 2011, Pakistan won three consecutive matches, making the last two dead-rubbers. In 2008, Pakistan won three-nil in the UAE. In 2006, West Indies toured Pakistan and lost the series 3-1. In 2005, Pakistan clean swept 3-0. The recent history does not favour West Indies much.
Having said that the home team have impact players, such as Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, who can change the situations on an individual performance alone. Pakistan appear to be better team on paper but just one or two good individual performances can square the series at the Providence before the teams move to St Lucia.
Watch out for
Shahid Afridi scripted one of the remarkable comebacks in history of ODI Cricket and his all-round performance will rank alongside his any career-best performance. A few eyes will be on him more than the match. Afridi is an exciting cricketer and there is a great amount of Pakistan viewers who watch cricket only for him. He left everyone in aw on Sunday night. If he delivers even half of what he gave to his team on Sunday, it will be a job well done.
Jason Holder: If there was anything positive that West Indies could take from the first match, it was Holder’s spell. Four wickets for 13 runs in 10 overs. He made life difficult for Pakistan top order. So confused were the batsmen against the tall Barbadian that three of them lost wickets when they failed to pick seam movement and the bounce, and shouldered arms. Can Holder repeat the performance on Tuesday? Watch out for him.
Weather and conditions
It is hot and humid these days in Guyana. A little rain can be expected during the match too. The Providence has one of the best drainage facilities in the Caribbean, the groundsmen won’t take much time to dry the conditions if there are interruptions. As for the pitch. It is likely to assist bowlers again. In words of Afridi, it could again be wow wow wow!
Umar Akmal had a successful time behind the stumps, meaning Pakistan won’t bring in the regular keeper Mohammad Rizwan. Batting top order failed again but the conditions were difficult. Pakistan are likely to go in with the same playing XI.
West Indies are also likely to retain the playing XI from previous match. Jason Holder’s impressive spell means Tino Best will warm the bench again. Or he could be roped in at the expense of Kemar Roach.
Stats and Trivia
