Former champions Pakistan and West Indies clash in an ICC Men's T20 World Cup warm-up game in Dubai today. Both teams have sufficient cricket behind them and the West Indians will bank on several players who turned out for their respective franchises in the recently concluded Indian Premier League. This PAK vs WI match will see several experienced players on either side. West Indies will be served by the mercurial Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, who was part of the IPL 2021 winning Chennai Super Kings squad. Pakistan will have the benefit of at least three former captains in the team. Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez and Sarfaraz Ahmed will beef up Babar Azam's team. Pakistan start their T20 World Cup campaign with a group match against India on October 24 while West Indies start a day earlier with 50-over World Cup champions England.
