West Indies Form
The West Indies will be confident coming into this series after beating Australia 4-1 in their last T20I series. Prior to that, the Windies lost 3-2 to South Africa.
Leading the series 3-1, the West Indies batted first in the 5th T20 against Australia. Evin Lewis struck 79 runs off just 34 balls to lead the hosts to a 199-run total at Gros Islet.
On a good batting deck the bowlers backed the batsmen up, restricting Australia to 183 in 20 overs. Sheldon Cottrell was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3-28 in four overs.
The West Indies did lose the subsequent ODI series 2-1 against Australia. Lewis however continued his fine form, scoring 55 runs in the last match.

Pakistan lost their most recent T20I series 2-1 in England. After winning the first match of the series, Pakistan failed to back it up in the final two matches.

Over the course of the three matches, Rizwan scored 50+ on two occasions while Azam jot 85 runs in the first match.

With the T20 Cricket World Cup later this year, Pakistan will want to keep the continuity within their side. They may look to give opportunities to some fringe players but they should be at close to full strength throughout the series.
