Pakistan wins thefirst ODI:

It was Babar Azam who laid the winning platform for Pakistan in the first match. Young bowler Mohammed Nawaz picked four-wicket by giving away just 42 runs.

The form of Imad Wasim, the Pakistani spinner was also at his best throughout the series, and if he succeeds in finding the rhythm again, then it will not be an easy task for the spin-wary West Indian side.

As we all know, the pitch in Sharjah is known for its batting friendly nature, and we have witnessed many run flooding matches in this ground.

The curator believes that the same will happen in this match, and it will not be a surprise if the game surpasses 600 runs in total. There are slight chances of the shower, and it may interrupt the proceedings of this game.
