The second Test between West Indies and Pakistan is set to take place at Sabina Park in Jamaica on Thursday.
After a thrilling one-wicket triumph, West Indies will look to seal a series win with the likes of Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales in fine touch. But they will need to be wary of a wounded Pakistan team ready to pounce on the home side and level the series in what promises to be another entertaining game of Test cricket in Jamaica.

WI vs PAK, 2nd Test
Date and Time: 20th August 2021, at 8:30 PM IST
Venue: Sabina Park, Jamaica
As seen in the previous game, the pacers will be key on this surface given the nature of the pitch. Excess movement and bounce off the surface is expected, with the batsmen likely to struggle for runs. There should be some variable bounce on offer as well, making it difficult for runscoring. Both teams will look to bowl first upon winning the toss and make full use of the conditions upfront.
Today's WI vs PAK Dream11 match top picks
Mohammad Rizwan: Although Mohammad Rizwan showed glimpses of his ability in the previous Test, he couldn't convert his starts into a big one. He will be key for the Pakistanis given his ability to keep the scoreboard ticking regardless of the pitch.
Babar Azam: Babar Azam did manage some runs in the second innings of the previous Test. However, he will be itching to make an impact in this game as Pakistan look to level the series.
Jason Holder: Jason Holder impressed with both the bat and ball in the previous game, making good use of the conditions on offer. He is expected to be a popular pick in the second Test as well, given his form and skill-set.
Kemar Roach: Kemar Roach was relentless with the new ball in both innings and even came up with a crucial knock in the second innings to guide the Windies to a historic win. However, he should prove to be a menace with the ball in this Test, making him a must-have in your WI vs PAK Dream11 fantasy team.
