West Indies vs Pakistan 1st T20I Betting Tips 28/07/2021

Teams Status

West Indies

Confidence in camp West Indies will be sky high and why shouldn’t it be? They just thrashed Australia 4-1 and some of those wins were by decent margins. The Caribbean side are a tough opponent in T20 format for any team in the world but they’d have to be wary of the Pakistan side they will soon be up against.

In some ways, Pakistan are a bit like the West Indies as both the sides excel in the shortest format but deteriorate the longer the cricket goes.

Another reason for the Windies to be careful with Pakistan is their woeful T20I record against the Men in Green. Of the 14 matches played between the two sides, the West Indies have won just three and lost 11. Their abysmal 21.42%-win percentage against Pakistan is their lowest in the format against any other opposition. Thus, it would suffice to say that Pakistan are the kryptonites for the Windies.

That said, most of Pakistan’s wins over Windies have come against a lot less star-studded sides. This current Windies rendition packs all the superstars that previously used to live just for T20 leagues.


Pakistan are usually brilliant in T20 cricket but they’re currently coming off an unimpressive run. Earlier this month, they lost 2-1 to an England side that was still missing a few regulars.

Before that, they had beaten Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe but that’s pretty much a given almost always. In fact, their 2-1 series win, which saw them lose the middle T20I, was actually seen as a bit of a dampener of a result.

In the series against England, coach Misbah-ul-Haq and company tried PSL standout Sohaib Maqsood as well as Azam Khan. Neither did anything of note though. It will be interesting to see if the pair is retained or not against the Windies.

Tipster’s Angle

Pakistan to win @ 2.06

Pakistan are one of the weirdest and the most difficult teams to predict. On their recent tour of England they were awful for the most part despite having a more than decent squad and facing an weakened opponent. Against the Windies, they are betting underdogs and expected to not do so well against a side that just thrashed the Aussies. We believe this could be a trap. The Men in Green will be a totally different side in this series, and we expect them to open up a gap early in the series. The play here is to back Pakistan at 2.06 with Betway.

Highest opening partnership – Pakistan @ 1.85

Pakistani batters have traditionally been bad starters, especially in new conditions and early on. But their current top two are two of the most reliable batsmen in all of T20 cricket. Evin Lewis or whoever opens for the Windies, despite their familiarity of local conditions, do not come anywhere near Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in terms of class and reliability. This is a bet that can be worth pounding for the entire series.


As explained above, Pakistan are kryptonites for the Windies in T20Is and it should show.
