A suddenly high-flying Pakistan cricket team, coming off a difficult and largely disappointing tour of England, finds itself on the verge of a One Day International series whitewash over West Indies, which would be their second straight on the current tour of the United Arab Emirates, in a match that will stream live on Wednesday after Pakistan won the second ODI by a convincing 59 runs.
Pakistan have played almost all of their home matches in the UAE since a 2009 terrorist attack against the Sri Lanka cricket team in 2009.
Pakistan whitewashed West Indies in the tour-opening T20 series in one-sided fashion.
But West Indies, who never got their batting attack off the ground in the T20 series or in the first ODI, will hope that a change of approach from their usual free-hitting style to a greater emphasis on strike-rotation will help kick their run-scoring into gearfor the second ODI.
“Clearly, the game plan from Pakistan has been to have slow wickets to bowl a lot of spin and have very big boundaries,” said the West Indies’ batting coach, Toby Arthur. “West Indies are known to be a big, six-hitting and boundary-hitting side, normally play on quicker pitches and slightly smaller grounds. But it’s up to us to find a way around that.”
