PAK vs WI | How Will it Affect the ODI Super League Points Table?

Pakistan and West Indies are ready to lock horns at the iconic Multan Cricket
Stadium in three ODIs, scheduled to take place on June 8, 10, and 12. All 3 games are part of the ODI Super League.
The ODI series that was supposed to be played in December 2021 had to be
postponed due to a COVID outbreak in the West Indies camp. The city of Saints
does have of course some real scorching heat hidden under its belt but make no
mistakes, the Windies already are accustomed to such weather and
temperatures.
However, Pakistanโ€™s announced squad seems very well balanced with the likes of
ace spinner Shadab Khan returning after recovery from an injury as well as top-order batsman Abdullah Shafique who surely did impress during this yearโ€™s PSL
with the maiden champions Lahore Qalandars. Other youngsters including
Shahnawaz Dahani, rising wicketkeeper batsman Muhammad Haris and leg
spinner Zahid Mehmood all have been included.
So realistically speaking, what chance does Pakistan have against the Windies?
Well, Pakistan currently sit at 10th in the ODI Super League having
played 12 matches, winning exactly 50% and of course, losing 50% of the
matches equating to 6 each. This ODI series is the best chance Pakistan has to
increase their points tally.
Babar Azam and co. will definitely need to come up with a plan that will topple
the visitors. However, the plan will need the best execution possible and that will
be down to Babarโ€™s men as to how they play in the field. With recent form in
mind, theyโ€™ll be putting on a great show for the fans and of course, only the best
show that will send them further up the table at 3rd or 4th, the former being
possible only if they can better their run-rate compared to Afghanistan. The
Windies sit at 4th having played 18 matches, winning 8 and losing 10.
Pakistan have some major strengths in the form of their eagle Shaheen Shah
Afridi whoโ€™ll definitely want to hunt with the new ball for some more scalps as he
always done. Pace gun Haris Rauf will look to continue his great form while top
order batsman Fakhar Zaman will indeed be also looking for chances to smash
some deliveries outside the park. The youngsters will surely be given a chance to
display their talent and win their team the matches they need.
Conclusively, this will definitely be one heck of an encounter because with points
and reputation both at stake, both teams will be doing their best and both will
want to emerge out on top at the end, however, the game can only be won by
one.
The Shaheens stand a huge chance and if they can pull off a whitewash, Pakistan
will well and truly be in a great position for the World Cup when the time comes.
