Pakistan vs West Indies 2011 Schedule

Pakistan vs West Indies 2011 Schedule
Pakistan will tour West Indies in the month of April 2011. After taking some rest from World Cup 2011, both team will participate in bilateral series which will include 1 T20I, 5 ODI and 2 Test matches spanned over a month.

If we go by pure ratings, the two teams do not have a great distinction with them being just two points apart in ODIs and separated by one point in Tests. But the difference in the confidence of the two outfits is what matters. Pakistan have just completed a decent world cup campaign by reaching the semi finals and being beaten by the eventual winners of the tournament won't dent them too much. West Indies on the other hand have had anything but a smooth time of it in international cricket. A fresh squad and resting of veterans for the initial two matches of the ODI series suggests the emphasis of team management on exposure of young players. Pakistan has also made some changes in their armory by axing the inconsistent Abdul Razzaq and Mr Butterfingers Kamran Akmal but have preserved most of the stars of their WC Campaign.

This will be an exciting series because even though the Windies have the home advantage, Pakistan on their day can be a formidable lineup and have the ability to crush the opposition by mere individual brilliance. The pitches in WI have recently been low and slow which almost makes teams from the subcontinent feel at home and the small grounds signals party time for the big hitters. In my opinion, the ODIs will be a little more competitive but WI will want their seniors (Gayle, Chanderpaul and Co) to perform if they need to be anywhere close to Pakistan for the Tests.
