At the Multan Cricket Stadium today, Pakistan will face West Indies in the first of three ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League matches.
The match will begin at 4:00 p.m. local time in Pakistan. The match will usher in a new era for Pakistan cricket, as the city will host international cricket for the first time in 14 years.
The three One-Day Internationals are part of the Super League cycle, and both teams are looking to gain valuable points in order to improve their prospects of qualifying for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 directly.
In March, Babar Azam‘s team upset Aaron Finch’s side 2-1 in Lahore, giving Pakistan their first ODI series victory against Australia in 20 years. Pakistan is playing in their fifth Super League series. In a press statement, PCB stated that they had defeated Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Australia while losing to England.
Babar, who is ranked first among batters in the ICC One-Day International Player Rankings, leads the batting charts with 902 runs at a staggering average of 90.20. He is the only hitter in the ongoing cycle to have hit five centuries, with Ireland’s Paul Stirling coming in second with three. The right-handed elegant stroke maker has hit 100 balls to the fence for a total of four. Recently, PCB uploaded a video of Preparations before the 1st ODI.
