With destructive batters like Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Nicholas Pooran, and Keiron Pollard, the defending champions West Indies entered the tournament as favorites but couldn’t live up to the expectations. One of the powerful T20 teams in the league, the Windies couldn’t exhibit their true potential in a relatively slow UAE pitch. The good news for the Windies fans is that T20 experienced Jason Holder joins the playing XI in place of injured Obed McCoy. Kieron Pollard-led West Indies must solve their batting woes to bounce back and grab the third title. Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka in the first game despite putting a commendable score on the board. The Tigers managed to keep Lanka in control but couldn’t resist Lanka in the end. In their second match, England displayed complete dominance in bowling first and batting later to register a comprehensive victory over Bangladesh. Today’s game is a must-win for West Indies and Bangladesh to stay active in the race to the semifinals.
Pakistan is looking unstoppable at the moment with back-to-back wins against two top teams in the tournament. Pakistan registered a historic win against India in the T20 opener and dominated New Zealand in the next match. The Green Brigade looks tough than ever in the mega event. Afghanistan’s win by 130 runs in their first game proves how formidable a team they are. Afghans displayed an exceptional batting and bowling performance against Scotland but to face a mighty Pakistan is the real test. It will be interesting to see how Afghanistan batters tackle Shaheen Afridi and how Pakistan handles Rashid Khan.
