Pakistan vs West Indies 1st T20I, Where To Watch?
India – Sony Sports Network
Pakistan vs West Indies 1st T20I Team News:
Babar Azam will continue to serve as the team’s captain. A batting team that includes the likes of him, Mohammad Rizwan, and Fakhar Zaman is fearsome. During this time, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan combine to produce a devastating bowling assault. Pakistan will be the favourites to win the series from the outset.
Because Pollard has been ruled out, Nicholas Pooran will be in charge of guiding the visitors. Shai Hope, Rovman Powell, and Pooran are the players in the batting order. Akeal Hosein made an impression at the T20 World Cup 2021 and will be keen to maintain his high level of performance.

The One-Liner Explainer:
Both teams have a strong level of strength in numbers. The first game of the T20I series is set to be a slugfest, with both teams poised to go all out.
Bench strength and favourable home circumstances could help Pakistan. On Monday, Pakistan will play West Indies in the first T20I match in Karachi.
