The three-match ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies is to start from June 08 (Wednesday). This series was to be held in December last year itself, but it was postponed due to Corona cases.
The Caribbean team returned last year only after playing the T20 series and now they have returned to complete the tour.
Let’s take a look at some of the big records that can be made in this series.
Important figures of teams before the series
Prior to this tour, West Indies won the ODI series 3-0 in the Netherlands. Earlier, they had to face a 0-3 clean sweep in India in February.
Talking about Pakistan, they defeated Australia 2-1 at home in March-April. Talking about the head-to-head record, West Indies have defeated Pakistan in 71 matches and they have lost in 60. Three matches are tied.
Hope can make this record
West Indies’ reliable batsman Shay Hope has scored 3,899 runs in 92 ODIs. Hope, who averages 51.30, has so far scored 11 centuries and 12 half-centuries. Hope can become the 11th Caribbean batsman to score 4,000 runs in ODI cricket.
If Hope scored 101 runs in the first ODI, he would become the joint fourth fastest batsman to score 4,000 runs along with Vivian Richards (88 innings).
Babar, Imam and Fakhar can achieve these achievements
Babar Azam has scored 4,261 runs in ODI cricket and is only 239 runs away from completing his 4,500 runs. He can become the 15th Pakistani batsman to achieve this feat.
Fakhar Zaman has scored 2,427 runs at an average of 46.67. He is 73 runs away from completing 2,500 runs. Imam-ul-Haq has scored 2,321 runs with an average of 53.97 and he can also complete 2,500 runs.
Rizwan can complete 1,000 runs
Mohammad Rizwan has scored 897 runs with an average of 28.03 and is close to completing 1,000 runs. Imam, who has scored nine centuries, will have a chance to become the seventh Pakistani to score 10 or more centuries.
In seven matches against West Indies, Babar has scored 536 runs with four centuries. He can equal the record of five centuries set by Brian Lara in the matches played between Pakistan and West Indies.
