Pakistan Champions Hold the Edge on Paper

While predicting the exact outcome is difficult, Pakistan Champions seem to have a slight edge on paper. Our analysis suggests a 78% chance of victory for Pakistan compared to 22% for the West Indies. This lead can be attributed to several factors:

  • Strong Batting Lineup: Pakistan boasts a formidable batting line-up with experienced players like Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, and Kamran Akmal. Their ability to score quickly and consistently could put pressure on the West Indies bowling attack.
  • Balanced Bowling Attack: The presence of bowling veterans like Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, and Sohail Tanvir provides a good mix of pace and spin, making it difficult for the West Indies batsmen to dominate.
