Pakistan will be hosting West Indies for three ODIs in June 2022. All the matches will be played in Multan with the first ODI on June 8. West Indies toured Pakistan in December last year and lost the T20I series. The hosts now will be looking to beat them in the ODI series as well to round off the tour.
West Indies will be led by Nicholas Pooran, their newly appointed white-ball skipper post Kieron Pollard’s retirement. They have the likes of Pooran Shai Hope and Rovman Powell among the batters. The side is a bit weak on their bowling with Jason Holder not included in the squad. Shimron Hetmyer too is not a part of this squad.
West Indies are heading into this series after playing an ODI series against the Netherlands. Their players are in form and looking forward to the contest. In this article, we pick West Indies’ predicted playing XI against Pakistan for the first ODI.
