West Indies is all set to lock horns with Pakistan for the 1st Test match on 12th August at the Sabina Park, Kingston. Notably, the series will be part of the new World Test Championship (WTC) cycle.
The T20I series was filled with a hell of a lot of rain, and several matches from the 4 T20I series were washed out. In 3 T20I games, rain played the spoilsport and 1 match was won by Pakistan. Meanwhile, West Indies will be looking forward to taking revenge by winning the Test series against Pakistan.
