Pakistan fans just had a glimpse of Cricket in the name of PSL. The joy will be extended when West Indies tour them to play three T20I’s. The first T20I will take place today at National Stadium, Karachi. This will be a summer treat for the cricket loving nation. Irrespective of the result, they would be over the moon to see international cricket in their country. It will be a clash of the T20I champion and Number one T20I side.
Ground and Conditions:
Pakistan pitches are generally slow in nature that is the reason why we witnessed low scoring affairs during PSL games. We can expect the same. However, it wont be short of entertainment.
Summer is approaching in Pakistan, so we will not see a drop of a rain. It will be full packed entertainment on the cards.
