Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first in the third T20 match of the four matches series between Pakistan and West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain here on Saturday.
Pakistan lead the four- match series 2-0. The match will start at 12:30 PM (local) 4:30 PM (GMT) and 9:30 PM on (Pakistan Standard Time).
Pakistan won the first T20 by six wickets. The green shirts extended their lead to 2-0 with Shadab Khan taking four wickets to help Pakistan win the game by three runs.
The visitors may field the same eleven that edged the second game in Trinidad. However, replacing Kamran Akmal with Mohammad Hafeez might be a possibility, if only for the extra bowling option he gives them.
On the other hand, the host side may not consider Rovman Powell, who fell for a first-ball duck in last game , with Jason Mohammad a possible replacement.
The pitch at the Queen’s Park Oval, as was witnessed during the second T20, is expected to favour the slow bowlers and offer plenty of turns. There is cloud cover expected in the evening, which might offer movement to the faster bowlers, but no rain.
