Pakistan and West Indies battle in the 2nd T20 in Dubai today and here you can catch all the updates with respect to scores and commentary. Pakistan are leading 1-0 in the three-match series and will be looking to wrap up today. Of course West Indies are world champions and will like to make this one tough for Pakistan.
We know that Pakistan are a dangerous unit when in form. They understand the conditions in Dubai quite well and know that they are going to come out of difficult positions against West Indies. It comes down to Pakistan having enough confidence in their own ability. We know that West Indies can be unpredictable and there is no doubting that they can win today as well. But truth be told, it seems West Indies may have to play above their ability today.
Such is the form Pakistan are in that it seems one way or the other they have the ability to even claw back. The crowd in Dubai also gets behind them, however big or small it is. That always plays a part. More than anything, there is a sense of familiarity for Pakistan.

The bowlers from both teams will like to put their best foot forward. For that to happen, Pakistan probably just need to turn up. They had a fabulous bowling performance yesterday. For West Indies, they need a good fielding performance.
West Indies cannot afford to be slow and steady. They have to take their chances and get enough on the board if they are batting first. There were too few runs scored yesterday, not a great sign.
We can also tell you that the track in Dubai is interesting to say the least. It is by reputation a belter but you would think that one way or the other it was quite different yesterday. West Indies though can come in their own and get some momentum. Pakistan also know that their fielding has to be up to the mark.
