PAK vs WI Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Oct 18, 2021
IPL 2021 is over and all the attention is now going to shift on to the T20 World Cup 2021. Even as the first round of matches begins, teams that have already qualified for the Super-12 stage are going to be playing the warm-up matches against each other.
Betting on these matches requires you to be a bit careful about the betting markets that you choose. Teams are not bothered about results and the focus is on experimentation. Of course, they do not really want to lose matches either as they risk losing momentum ahead of an important tournament.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Pakistan vs West Indies T20 World Cup 2021 Warm-Up Match. The match is going to be played at ICC Academy Ground, Dubai on the 18th of October 2021.
PAK vs WI Team Previews
Pakistan comes into this World Cup as one of the teams that people are worried about but not too many expect to actually win. We think that is a big mistake. UAE has been Pakistan's home of cricket for quite some time and it knows the conditions very well. In fact, Babar Azam has played 11 T20 internationals in USE and never lost a single one of them.
For the warm-up match, Pakistan will probably like to finalize its middle-order. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are among the most successful opening pair in the world so that is not going to change. Sohai Maqsood seemed to be in line for the number three slot but in his absence, it will probably be Fakhar Zaman. Mohammad Hafeez at four, Shoaib Malik at five, and Shadab Khan at 6 would probably be what they are looking at.
Imad Wasim, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Hasan Ali are all going to start. The remaining one place could go to an extra batsman like Hauder Ali or to an all-rounder like Mohammad Nawaz.
This is a very strong team that will thrive in the conditions it encounters during the T20 World Cup 2021.

Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Mohammad Nawaz, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Haider Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jr.
West Indies is one of the most dangerous T20 teams in the world but it can also be a bit inconsistent. It has more six-hitting power than any other team on this planet and its bowling is quite good too. We think the West Indies think tank is going to play more or less its best team with maybe a few places up for grabs in the bowling department.
Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Chris Gayle, and Andre Fletcher will all be pushing for batting slots. Kieron Pollard and Fabian Allen should play as the all-rounders. Among the bowlers, we think Obed McCoy could be one of the bowlers that makes a big impact in this series.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions are going to be hot but good for playing cricket. The pitch should be good for batting but a bit on the slower side. We think this may actually be a better batting surface than what the teams will get in UAE. A score of around 170 should be par.
