If Windies draw or win the tests that will mean Pakistan's test drought in WI extends for 4 more years. I can understand not winning in Aus, RSA  but WI? come on. That too after the dross they have fielded on so many occasions this millennium. Our C team won there in 2011, Bangladeshis won in 2009. If I am not wrong even Lanka hasn't won a test series in WI.

Pak will win ODIs. T20 series is too close to call and depends on WI motivation level. I am interested to see the test series because I genuinely feel WI has some potential there, at least at home. Was very impressed by how they won a match in fortress UAE. Cricket needs a strong WI.

Bangladesh ranked above pak in odi rankings loooool

 

come on windies :cheer:

To be fair Bangladesh have been really good at home....beat Pak,India and South Africa. Pak has been getting owned in ODI's everywhere be it UAE(adopted home) or overseas or ICC tournaments....I am pretty sure India or Australia or South Africa or England will be given a run for their money 9 out of 10 times if they play the present Banglaes team in ODI's on their turf.

 

WI are pathetic...Pak have been pathetic for a while.....As much immense joy I will get to see the Padosis play the qualifiers,I think the WI ODI team is pathetic.

 

Hope to see an upset :pray:

Not a chance. WI are formidable on home soil. Pak are mentally weak.

Are you kidding me? This is one of the best Pak ODI squads I have seen in recent times. Babar Azam looks special, shame about Sharjeel though. 

Pak won 1 ODI in Australia against the world champs first XI, that too with Rizwan as keeping batsman :giggle:. If my memory serves me right Aussies when fielding their first XI have at max lost 2 ODIs at home in the last couple of years.  Expect Pak to crush the Windies in ODIs. 

In tests playing the oldies may prove to be a blunder, why can't the Pak selectors opt for young blood in stead of 40 year olds? Babar Azam is only 22 and look how good he is. If you aren't willing to blood youngsters, how can you ever know how good they are?

What the hell r u on about lol

 

Pakistan are an awful ODI team.England slaughtered them at UAE.They haven't lose many because they haven't played many at home. The only team they have beaten is an wi team in disarray.

I meant they are the best Pak side I can recall in recent times, at least after their 2012 team which had a good run in RSA and India. FGS they beat full strength Australia in an ODI in Australia earlier this year, something we did way back in 2012.

jason holder I suppose is the only cricketer in international cricket having a long career and who is worse than our Ishant. Clive lyoyd may have seen some spark but he clearly needs to gain yards in domestic cricket

he's in Bangalore team

That's a good fit for him - historically crappy bowling team right?  The Kingfishers done good getting him in.  

 

My Gawd, the windies are atrocious fielders.  Already gave away 7-8 runs from misfields.  In a low scoring game, you lose matches this way.

Yes, this time they have Tymal Mills and Badree.. but cricinfo's likely playing xi indicates Gayle, ABD, watson and Mills might be the 4 Overseas player. 

IMO Badree should be the first pick ..tremendous economy rate of 5.6
