    This is West Indies best chance to beat Pakistan, not Pakistan's best chance to West Indies...

    I think they can beat Pakistan and if the warm up game is anything to go by I feel Pakistan might struggle [I hope not but...].

    Yasir Shah looks a pale shadow of himself since the NZ/Australia tours. Amir still hasn't fixed the swing issues he's had since coming back, and Wahab is consistent in his poor showings.

    I also feel West Indies have some very good young batsmen that can dent Pakistan's bowling and then put pressure on the batsmen thereafter.

    Anyway that's my honest opinion, but I do hope I get this catastrophically wrong 😁.

    Well... you arent the only one feeling that his is not a walk in the park.

    However, for Pakistan to lose this Test series will be a huge setback for us.

    Definitely, I've been saying it for long. Pakistani is a pretty mediocre team atm and it's a 50/50 chance whether they can win this series, especially since this West Indies team managed to beat Pakistan in their 'fortress' and is formed by some promising cricketers.

    It all depends on Yasir who's either mentally gone or has been found it...I think it's the former because he's a quality spinner and was the best in the world at one point. I hope he gets back to his best because he was a beast but judging by the warm up....it's unlikely.

    Need to start strong- I fear if we get behind the 8-ball we will not be able to catchup due to horrors of last 6 months.

    Babar needs to stand tall here and churn out big runs- and prove he can play the longest version well

    Agree completely.

    There would be a silver lining in another loss if we could at least try out some new talent. Give Abbas a proper chance, even a second new seamer. But I fear this will be a disappointing series on every front.

    Why some people are shy of highlighting the real problem with current Pakistan team, the very presence of two 43 year olds who have way passed their prime and are the weakest link and a liability on the team. If Pakistan lost, which could happen, they would be the prime reason, not Amir or Yasir.

    No-one's ignoring the batting, as I mentioned the warm-up game [where we struggled w/ the bat].

    Pakistan will either win the series or level it, slim chance for a WI victory.

    I will be shocked if WI even draws a single Test. They are a terrible Test team.

    A new look Indian team trounced them in 2 Tests and rain saved WI in the others. An experienced Pak team will destroy them.

    I did say it won't be as easy as some thought. Not saying we'll definitely lose but, this is WI best chance to get a major scalp.

    We are truly cursed in the Caribbean.

    At least we've a chance to put things right in Dominica but there's no guaranteeing we'll won that judging by the form of some of our batsmen. Salahuddin should come in for Shafiq.
