How would Pakistan line-up against the Windies?

As the sun sets on the third edition of the PSL, Pakistan wakes up to a new series to look forward to on home soil as West Indies drop by for a quick T20 series starting from 1st April.

The best ranked T20 side partake in their first bilateral series since touring New Zealand in January, but what makes this one a tad more special is that it officially marks the return of international cricket to the country for the first time since 2009.

There's an air of excitement around the series back in Pakistan and understandably so. Here's how their team might line-up in their inaugural international game in almost a decade.

Fakhar Zaman

The 27-year old southpaw's graph is steadily on an upswing. Having flattered to deceive in the series against Sri Lanka last year, Zaman piloted his side to the comeback win over New Zealand earlier this year with a combined knock of 96 in the last two outings, and was one of the few bright spots in a Lahore Qalandars side that finished at the bottom of the PSL 2018 group stage.

Ahmed Shehzad

At only 26, few players can brag about the kind of pedigree that Shehzad does, and the Lahore native is looking upbeat upon returning to the squad last April after a considerable spell out with fitness layoffs and disciplinary issues.

An underwhelming PSL with Multan Sultan notwithstanding, Shehzad remains instrumental on the international front and would be raring on to build on his fine return in the Tasmanian tour.
