Key Players

Pakistan

For Pakistan, they have two key players in their squad. Their skipper Babar Azam is considered one of the great batsmen in world cricket by many. He is also regularly compared with the likes of some great players. Azam will have to step up to the occasion. He has scored 3 half-centuries and 226 runs in Test matches against West Indies. In the T20s, he has a good record with 403 runs and an average of 57.57.

Mohammad Rizwan is a wicketkeeper who will be very pivotal. Rizwan’s performance behind the stumps and at the crease will be vital. He will have to pile up as many runs as possible. Rizwan is one of the best wicketkeepers Pakistan has ever played. Since his arrival in international cricket, he has been consistent with the bat. Also, his glovework has been excellent. Rizwan is a dynamic addition to the setup.

West Indies

There are many power hitters in this team and it makes it difficult to choose key players for T20. Their batting depth is immense and aggression is impeccable. Evin Lewis will be the key player for this team. He will have the responsibility to give a solid opening partnership. Also,  if he gives a base to build on Windies can score big totals.
