The Pakistan national cricket team can guarantee at least a split of its T20 International series against West Indies in a match that will live stream Thursday from Trinidad and Tobago with the struggling West Indies side hoping to regain at least some of the form that brought them their second World Cup T20 championship just one year ago.
Fans who want to watch a live stream of the second Pakistan vs. West Indies T20 match can find full streaming information below on this page. First ball is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time at Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. For cricket fans in Pakistan, that start time will be 9:30 p.m. Pakistan Standard Time, while in the United Kingdom the live stream gets underway at 5:30 p.m. British Summer Time.
Cricket fans in the United States can watch the second West Indies vs. Pakistan T20 stream live starting at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 9:30 a.m. Pacific.
In the first match of the four-game set, West Indies managed just 111 runs in the first innings, a total easily chased down by Pakistan, led by 38 not out from Shoaib Malik, inside of 18 overs.
But the real star of the game was 18-year-old Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan, who took three wickets on debut while allowing a microscopic 1.75 economy rate in his four overs.
