This T20I series has been reduced to four matches which was previously supposed to be of five. The series prior to this between West Indies and Australia was hampered due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the West Indian camp. It led to the postponement of the second ODI. As a result, the current series was compromised.
Aa far as the respective previous T20I series of the two teams are concerned, they had contrasting results. West Indies defeated Australia by a margin of 4-1. On the other hand, Pakistan lost to England 2-1. As the T20 World Cup is coming closer, this series will be very important for either team.

Pitch Report for WI vs PAK 1st T20I
