The Sabina Park in Jamaica is set to host the second and last Test of the ongoing two-match series between West Indies and Pakistan from Friday (August 20).

The home team is already ahead in the series after winning the first Test by one wicket. The Caribbeans will look to claim another victory in order to register the clean sweep over their opponents.

On the other hand, the visitors are in a do-or-die situation and will be aiming for a comeback to level the series.

Pitch report:

The surface at Sabina Park will assist fast bowlers, and it was quite evident in the series opener, where spinners from both sides failed to take even a single wicket.

Head to Head record:

Matches played: 53 | West Indies won: 18 | Pakistan won: 20 | Draw: 15 | Tied: 0
