Pakistan will take on the West Indies in the second game of the ongoing three-match T20I series at National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday.
Pakistan won the series opener by 63 runs on Monday and led the three-match leg 1-0. On the other hand, it’s a do-or-die contest for West Indies, as if they lose today, the hosts would seal the series.
