Sport News: The ghosts of the T20 World Cup 2021 are yet to be buried, with West Indies still not looking like a team that has been crowned T20 World Champions twice. Windies first encounter against Pakistan on Monday resulted in an embarrassing defeat, with Babar Azam & Co. showing why they are among the best in the world in the shortest format.
Pakistan came into the series on the back of a 3-0 triumph over Bangladesh in the T20Is, and they look determined to continue their winning run. Mohammad Rizwan and Haider Ali were the stars for Pakistan in the first match while Mohammad Nawaz also produced a brilliant cameo. Babar, who was dismissed for a duck in the last match, would hope to return to form with the bat in the second match.
For West Indies, all three departments of the game. The players didn’t just disappoint with the bat and the ball but also gave too many extra runs in the field. It’s time for serious course correction for the men from the Caribbean.
