West Indies v Pakistan, 1st T20I, Barbados March 25, 2017

Big picture

West Indies and Pakistan have only played four completed T20 internationals since last year's World T20, a number they are set to double in this series. The sample might not seem like much to go on, but the scale of their contrasting fortunes - Pakistan haven't lost any while West Indies have only one win - promises an intriguing narrative.

Neither side has played a T20I since Pakistan beat West Indies 3-0 in the UAE last year. Both sides, however, are going through wretched runs of form, combining to win just two of their 17 games since then.

What might differentiate the teams is the mood heading into this tour. While reasons for cheer in West Indies cricket are scarce at the moment, Pakistan are in buoyant spirits after a successful Pakistan Super League, the final of which was held at a packed Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, foreign players and all. are no less than five players in Pakistan's squad who directly owe their inclusion to impressive performances in the PSL this season, including Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad. The dampener is the absence of explosive opener Sharjeel Khan, provisionally suspended in the wake of the corruption scandal that engulfed the PSL.

West Indies' squad is an analyst's nightmare, with teams varying wildly from one series to the next. The team that played their last T20I, for example, included just two players from the side that won them the World T20 less than six months prior to that. However, the management has brought back some T20 stars for this series, with Lendl Simmons and Samuel Badree notable returnees. With Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Carlos Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels all in, this appears to be as strong a squad as West Indies could have hoped to assemble.

Form guide

West Indies: LLLWW (last five completed matches, most recent first)
Pakistan: WWWWL

In the spotlight

Carlos Brathwaite has yet to fire since being named West Indies' T20I captain in the aftermath of that manic World T20 final against England. The four times he's batted since, he has made 14, 18, 0 and 8. It could be argued he's too good a power hitter not to bat higher up the order, but the West Indies side is replete with explosive batsmen, and if he is to make his mark, it may end up being lower down. With the first T20I in his hometown of Barbados, Brathwaite might just get the extra motivation he needs.

Carlos Brathwaite is yet to replicate his World T20 heroics

Babar Azam is something of a peculiarity among Pakistan batsmen, in that he has been remarkably consistent. He has scored four hundreds in his last eight ODI games. What he could improve on is converting good T20 starts into big scores, and with him likely to open the batting in the absence of Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan, this is an ideal opportunity.

Team news

West Indies could go into this match with a healthy blend of youth and experience. The WICB announced on the eve of the first match that Andre Fletcher, Jonathan Carter and Veerasammy Permaul had been released from the original 16-man squad for the first two matches. Fletcher's absence means the in-form Chadwick Walton, who scored a century against the English tourists in a 50-over warm-up match last month, will most likely take over the gloves and open the batting with Evin Lewis.

West Indies (probable): 1 Chadwick Walton (wk), 2 Evin Lewis, 3 Marlon Samuels, 4 Lendl Simmons, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Jason Mohammed, 7 Carlos Brathwaite (capt), 8 Sunil Narine, 9 Jason Holder, 10 Samuel Badree, 11 Jerome Taylor

It remains to be seen how many of the young players, who broke through during the PSL, end up being included. The older returnees - Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad - are expected to slot back in straightaway. With Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees, Wahab Riaz, Usman Khan and Sohail Tanvir all part of the squad, Pakistan's fast bowling looks ominous.

Pakistan (probable): 1 Ahmed Shehzad, 2 Babar Azam, 3 Mohammad Hafeez, 4 Kamran Akmal, 5 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 6 Shoaib Malik, 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Sohail Tanvir, 9 Rumman Raees, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Wahab Riaz

Pitch and conditions

The Kensington Oval surface has regularly produced high-scoring T20 internationals. All completed CPL games last season produced at least one total above 170. There is a slight chance of rain in the afternoon, although it is not expected to prevent a full contest.

Stats and trivia

The Kensington Oval is yet to see a score above 200. In the 16 T20 internationals held here, the highest total was Sri Lanka's 195 for 3 during the World T20 in 201• Kamran Akmal has not played a T20 international since the World T20 in 2014. His last game was also against West Indies. He was dismissed for 0 as Pakistan lost by 84 runs - their third-heaviest defeat in T20Is.

West Indies all out for about 119. They were about 60/6. Truly they are a poor side these days it is sad to see.

Were it not for a dropped catch at one point Pakistani debutant bowler shadab Khan would have had figures of 4/1.

Pakistan currently 18/0 from 3. RRR is only 5.60 or so.

Shadab only 18 years old, in 4 first class game he not hits century (132) but took 24 wickets.Leg break bowler he is.

4/0/7/3 player of match on debut.wicket is popular for lower scores.only SL's 195 for 3 highest score here in tenty20 international.so Pakistan 1/0 in 4 match t20 series.

WI 111 for 8 (20 overs)
Braithwaite 34 n,o
Shadab 3 wickets

Pakistan 115 for 4 (18.1 overs)
(Babar Azam 29,Shoib Malik 38 n.o,Kamran A. 22)
Pakistan won by 6 wits

Venue -wise first game was bowlers paradises since decades but next 3 games will be at port of Spain were might also helpful for spinner Sunil,Badree or Shadab khan - amazing talent for someone with 18 years old only.

Sides win toss, might favorite to win games at port of Spain.

Yes but for me Odd time to watch live games in India
10 pm Till 1:15 pm

During last game, I do not find highlights on very next day, on TV Channel tensports(3) so I wants to see the game live on March 30,but 155/170 scores better to watch than first game

Yesterday Salman Butt hits century in under 23 game I think imamul Haq also hits 2nd century in second successive day in under 23.

Salman deserves more than Hafez in Pakistan team with his elegant record in Pakistan's domestic cricket.if Amir was forgiven why not Butt?

Right
That is why I wants to play IIHAG, its 6 innings of 3 test so seprate team better but how to find 6 participant is big issue.

I am dying to open day by day matches separately on IPL instead same (opened) link because no one can see anything insides.

I agree. Don't do it. No new IPL thread every day for every match. some days we have 2 matches too.

It worked earlier when we had 10+ BCCI fan boys who are active daily.
Now we have more international members & this would be an eye sour.

Agreed no one cares about the IPL :P

But yes, one big thread should suffice. If we can encapsulate three English domestic competitions into one thread, and three Aussie comps into one thread, then we can keep all the IPL in one thread even if it does get more attention than the former two.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/west-indies ... 90723.html

Can Shadab Khan spin his magic in the ODIs as well?

Big Picture

It is often alleged that the existential threat 50-over cricket faces arises largely due to the number of ODIs played without context or substantial meaning. Series such as this one, featuring three ODIs tucked between four T20s and three Tests, would generally have been the perfect example to advance that point. But the ICC's otherwise severely criticised move to reduce the World Cup to ten teams, only eight of which qualify directly, means Pakistan and West Indies - ranked eighth and ninth in ODIs respectively - will be playing for much more than the series trophy when they take on each other in Guyana. If West Indies win all three ODIs, they will leapfrog their visitors to eighth position less than six months before the cut-off date of September 30.

Pakistan will be buoyed by a 3-1 win in the T20I series, although it did little to allay concerns that Sarfraz Ahmed's men are still too inconsistent to compete with the very best. The series was bookended by clinical wins, but the two games in between witnessed a convincing win for West Indies and one game their coach Stuart Law said they threw away. With West Indies now significantly depleted by the departure of many of their high-profile names to the IPL - Kieron Pollard, Carlos Brathwaite, Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine have all flown off to India - a mere series win, much less a whitewash, would be a welcome result.

West Indies LLLLL (last five completed matches, most recent first)
Pakistan LLLWL

In the spotlight

With Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree away, this represents an opportunity for Devendra Bishoo to establish himself in the West Indies' line-up. He will play all three ODIs in front of a home crowd in Guyana - the first time in his ODI career he is playing there. He is still just four games into a return from a five-year absence from the ODI set-up, and will be eager to improve upon disappointing returns against England; in three games, he took three wickets and conceded 136 runs in the 21 overs he bowled. But with the pitch in Providence expected to favour the slower bowlers, he will be hoping for better returns.

For Pakistan, could it really be anyone else? The biggest talking point in the T20Is was legspinner Shadab Khan's explosive introduction to the international stage. The 18-year-old was instrumental in all three of Pakistan's wins, and was named the Man of the Series, an award for which, in truth, he was the only contender. He now faces a sterner test: whether he can turn brilliant four-over spells into solid performances over ten overs in various phases of an ODI innings.

Team news

The West Indies squad is significantly different from the one that featured in the T20I series, and not necessarily the better for it, at least on paper. As previously mentioned, Brathwaite, Pollard, Badree and Narine are absent, while Kraigg Brathwaite has been dropped in favour of Chadwick Walton, a move coach Stuart Law put down to a desire for greater impetus at the top of the innings. Pacers Shannon Gabriel, Miguel Cummins and Alzarri Joseph all feature, a sign that West Indies may finally be moving on from veteran Jerome Taylor, who did not play any of the T20Is despite being in the squad.
:dance:
West Indies (possible): 1 Evin Lewis, 2 Chadwick Walton (wk), 3 Kieran Powell, 4 Shai Hope, 5 Jason Mohammad, 6 Jonathan Carter, 7 Jason Holder (capt), 8 Ashley Nurse, 9 Devendra Bishoo, 10 Alzarri Joseph, 11 Shannon Gabriel

Pakistan haven't made too many changes to the side that won the T20Is, although a few fresh faces have been drafted in. Asif Zakir, Fahim Ashraf and Mohammad Asghar are the three players in the 16-man squad yet to pull on an international shirt in any format. The most notable difference is the return of left-arm fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan, who were rested from the T20 series. In addition, it will also be the first ODI series for Sarfraz Ahmed as captain, after Azhar Ali was removed after the 4-1 defeat in Australia and omitted from the squad altogether.

:dance:
Pakistan (possible): 1 Ahmed Shehzad, 2 Kamran Akmal, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Fakhar Zaman, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Shadab Khan, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Wahab Riaz

Pitch and conditions

In the short history of the Providence Stadium in Guyana (it was constructed ahead of the 2007 World Cup), it has developed a reputation as a venue where the ball keeps low and doesn't come on to the bat. As such, the execution of each side's spin-bowling plans may be decisive in the outcome of this match - and indeed the series.

Rain is expected in the early part of the day, but the sky should clear up by the evening.

Stats and trivia

The best individual ODI bowling performance at the Providence Stadium was by Pakistan allrounder Shahid Afridi in 2013. His figures read a remarkable 9-3-12-7 as the West Indies were skittled out for 98 - the lowest score at this ground
• Only once has the Providence Stadium seen an innings total in excess of 300. That was during the 2007 World Cup, when Sri Lanka made 303 against the hosts

Big Picture


West Indies will barely have recovered from the high of a record-breaking win in the first ODI against Pakistan when they go at it again in the second game on Sunday. It had looked every inch the average game you would expect against a depleted West Indies side before lesser-known Jason Mohammed dismantled Pakistan's fabled fast-bowling attack, sealing a chase of 309 with an over to spare. As a result, they prepare for the second game in the knowledge that they have the opportunity to wrap up a long-awaited series win against a top side.

Pakistan's shock at losing the first ODI was written large across each of their faces, none more so than captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who seemed to run out of ideas and composure in equal measure as Mohammed began his brutal onslaught in the last ten overs. His leadership will be tested right away, as he faces the responsibility of lifting his team after a morale-sapping defeat.

There was much scrutiny on the pace of Pakistan's innings during the middle overs, especially the sluggish way Mohammad Hafeez went about his innings, even though he did make up for it in the closing overs. However, Mickey Arthur also made plain his disappointment at the bowlers not being able to execute their plans at the back end. While there may be plenty of soul-searching for the visitors to do, they don't have much time to do it.

Form guide

West Indies WLLLL (last five completed matches, most recent first)Pakistan LLLL

In the spotlight

Chadwick Walton was chosen ahead of Kraigg Brathwaite because West Indies coach Stuart Law felt he could take better advantage of the first Powerplay. But Walton's ODI strike rate of 52.17 and average of 4.80 suggest Law's faith stems from what he may have seen in practice or domestic cricket. While six ODIs isn't a large sample size, those numbers are desperately disappointing by any standards, especially for an opener. As such, he may already be feeling the pressure to justify his coach's faith, particularly if he is to make a case for inclusion in the upcoming Tests, a format where his average reads an even more forlorn 3.25 in four innings.

No one splits opinion in Pakistan quite like Wahab Riaz, a true specimen of raw Pakistani fast bowling in all his bouncer-bowling, reverse-swinging, toe-crushing glory. But the other side of the left-armer is becoming impossible to ignore too. He has days - too many to be mentioned in the same breath as true fast bowling greats - when he is wildly inaccurate, struggles to keep his foot the right side of the crease or away from the danger zone down the middle of the pitch. With the criticism growing all the time, Wahab's career may be at a crossroads and the upcoming months, starting with Sunday, could shape the mercurial cricketer's future.

Team news

The result on Friday papered over what was a largely insipid performance from West Indies with both bat and ball for much of the contest, but the feel-good factor the win generated might tempt them to stick with the same eleven.

West Indies XI (possible): 1 Evin Lewis, 2 Chadwick Walton (wk), 3 Kieran Powell, 4 Shai Hope, 5 Jason Mohammad, 6 Jonathan Carter, 7 Jason Holder (capt), 8 Ashley Nurse, 9 Devendra Bishoo, 10 Alzarri Joseph, 11 Shannon Gabriel

Pakistan have more pressing selection quandaries than the hosts. Hafeez top-scored, but didn't seem to convince many, even if his contribution with the ball should see him retain his place. Mohammad Amir and Wahab were both poor at the death, and Junaid Khan could get his chance at the expense of one of them.

Pakistan XI (possible): 1 Ahmed Shehzad, 2 Kamran Akmal, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Mohammad Hafeez, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt, wk), 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Shadab Khan, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Junaid Khan

Pitch and conditions

The newly-laid surface at the Providence Stadium played much better than its predecessor had established a reputation for. A mockery was made of the wisdom that a low-scoring series was expected, as the ground record for an ODI innings was broken twice in four hours. Going purely off the first game, fans can expect another run-fest. Some cloud cover is expected, but rain is unlikely.

Stats and trivia

• West Indies have not won an ODI series since August 2014, when they beat Bangladesh 3-0 at home. The last time they beat Pakistan in a bilateral ODI series was back in 1991, when Richie Richardson captained them to a 2-0 win against Imran Khan's Pakistan
• In his last seven innings in 50-overs cricket, Jason Mohammed has failed to go past fifty only twice

Quotes

"The team morale is really good. The boys believe in sticking together and being a family. We have to come back even stronger on Sunday. We can't rest on the victory. The important thing is to close out the series."
West Indies bowler Ashley Nurse

The Innings Of Jason Mohammad's Dreams

Postby Misty » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:32 am

The innings of Jason Mohammed's dreams

Jason Mohammed compiled his career-best performance to help West Indies record their first-ever 300+ chase in ODIs

"Where have you been all these years?" This was the question by Ramiz Raja that greeted the Man of the Match Jason Mohammed following his astounding, unbeaten 91 that guided the West Indies to a highly improbable victory over Pakistan. It was the question Viv Richards, returning from West Indies duties to captain the Leeward Islands, asked Curtly Ambrose who had shot out of the blue to snatch wickets and break bones in the 1988 regional Red Stripe Cup. It was the question many cricket followers were asked after Shikar Dhawan's barely believable 187-run assault on the Australians in his Test debut in Mohali in March 2013.

The question was not out of place. Mohammed is, after all, 30-years-old, and though he had represented the West Indies against India in Chennai way back in December 2011, you might not have heard of him unless you paid close attention to regional cricket in the Caribbean. And even if you had, it is likely you'd have been as surprised as everyone else was after he played an innings of such quality and import.

A few pundits reported that the Trinidadian played the innings of his life. That may be true, at least up to this point in his life. But he played with such composure, skill and aplomb, that you'd bet good money he'll be able to play in like manner again. As far as batsmen go, 30 is not at all old. Just ask Michael Hussey and Chris Rogers. Mohammed might still have a long way to go.

With the West Indies needing 309 to win, not many gave them much of a chance to even get close, especially after stretches of pedestrian batting that saw the required run-rate climb up to well over nine. This was understandable. It's not like the West Indies had big hitters like Andre Russell, Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard or Dwayne Bravo in their line-up. This was more of a second-string team, lacking all the major stars, who were otherwise occupied in the IPL.

This team was not supposed to have the capacity to construct a record-breaking pursuit of Pakistan's 308, the highest total successfully chased by the West Indies. An unknown batsman like Jason Mohammed was not supposed to score West Indies' second-fastest half-century (off 31 deliveries) against Pakistan (the fastest was scored by the great Viv Richards). Pakistan's bowling, with their wealth of express, and high-caliber fast bowlers and deceitful spinners were supposed to be too good for this inexperienced bunch, even on a surface that posed no terrors for the batsmen.

Mohammed simply exceeded the expectations. It can't be said that he broke the door down demanding selection. Had the big stars been available, he most certainly would not have played. But with this latest innings, Mohammed has shown he belongs. If he is able to maintain this level of batting, he will own the spot for a long time.

The former West Indies U-19 player made his debut over ten years ago, playing in a home game for Trinidad and Tobago against Jamaica and has been in and around the team all this while. With inconsistency plaguing his progress, it is unlikely he ever entered the selectors thoughts for higher honours in that format.

Having made his List-A debut in January 2007, he has been a slightly better performer in limited-overs cricket. A good 2011-12 season, in which he scored two fifties in five games and averaged 56.75, awarded him a ticket on the 2011-12 tour of India. Since then, he has only been good in patches and was rightly ignored by the selectors.

But then that changed during the 2016-17 season. He compiled a well-made 105 in October 2016 for West Indies A on the tour of Sri Lanka, and then averaged 62.5 from nine matches in the regional Super 50 tournament. His growth as a player was evident, especially when you add the impression he made during the 2016 CPL.

All that came before, however, was simply a build-up to Friday. It paved the way for his greatest achievement, his greatest day. All those days of relative mediocrity must now fade and he will now aspire to exceed the expectations he set on April 7.

Joining the action at 156/3 in the 33rd over, with 153 runs needed from 107 balls, Mohammed began like a man who understood the urgency of the situation. His first boundary came by way of an edged stroke to the third man boundary. Then, with the cover and mid-off fielders positioned within the 30-yard circle, the batsman profited by going aerial in that region. One shot lofted straight over the umpire's head off Hasan Ali was memorable for its effortlessness. The batsman showed that he too enjoyed the shot by holding the pose longer than usual, left elbow to the sky.

Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz bowled at pace; Mohammad was in no way daunted. Riaz was pulled and cut for fours in the same over, while Amir was pulled over long off and into the stands for six one ball, and then driven high, into the same area, two balls later. The next delivery was flicked for four and 17 came off that over.

Later, while accepting his award, he revealed that he targeted Pakistan's seamers. And the majority of his runs were indeed made off the faster bowlers. But he handled the spinners expertly too, milking their bowling for singles and twos, and striking boundaries off Imad Wasim given the slightest opportunity. All throughout his innings, Mohammed hit the ball cleanly, timed it impeccably and located the gaps with a high degree of precision.

As West Indies raced towards an outstanding victory, Ashley Nurse, who replaced Jason Holder with the score on 259, did most of the scoring, slamming 34 off 15 deliveries and denying his colleague the chance of reaching what would have been a well-deserved century. His partner would not have been bothered the least, securing the win was what mattered. If he bats similarly, he might still have many opportunities.

West Indies recently lost all three ODIs they contested against the visiting England team. One of the positives emerging from that series was the batting of Mohammed, who had scores of 72 and 50 in the first two games. He played well then, and, in some ways, his batting against England was a foretelling of this innings. Still, most would not have believed his batting could have the heights one saw it ascend to on Friday. It is indeed the kind of innings he'd have played in his dreams.

I appear to be as underwhelmed by kamran Akmal as I have ever been. An avg of 26 from 157 matches is just dire. Surely Pakistan have other options in the shed? Particularly with sarfraz taking the gloves.
