Pakistan are riding high on confidence after whitewashing Bangladesh in the Test and T20I series during the recently-concluded tour. The side will also be more than happy to play at home after New Zealand and England decided against touring the nation due to security concerns ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021 in the UAE and Oman.
While Pakistan reached into the semifinals of the ICC event, West Indies crashed out after losing four of their 5 matches in the group stage. With new players in the squad, the time is just perfect for West Indies to start their preparation for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
