On the opposite, Windies are expected to undergo one or two changes. There is no update on Veerasammy Permaul injury. He might miss this match also.

Windies will mainly rely upon Marlon Samuels, Chadwick Walton, skipper Jason Mohammed and Andre Fletcher for putting runs on the scoreboard. In bowling Keemo Paul, Ryad Emrit and Rovman Powell will have to take the charge.
The National Stadium pitch in Karachi is neutral. The wicket favors both batting and bowling. The team batting first is expected to set a target of 170-180 for the opposition.

With a massive win in both the T20Is (143 runs in 1stT20 and 82 runs in 2nd T20), Pakistan will again start as favorites. On contrary, the visitors have not looked promising in both the games. Although, they played quite well in the second game but failed to clinch a win. Surely, Pakistan is much stronger than the depleted side of Windies.
