Analysing the South African team and the way the West Indian Players have performed in the recent past overseas, the test series is going to be a tough cookie for the proteas. The 5 matches T20i series will start with the Caribbean team as favourites. We have seen the massive power the host have when it comes to the shortest format of the game.
The 5 matches T20i series with the Aussies is balanced equally with the Aussies having a slight edge. Given the performance of the Aussies in the ODIs in the recent past, we reckon them as favourites for the 3 match ODI series between them and the Caribbeans.
Given the prowess, both these teams I.e. Pakistan and West Indies have in the shortest format of the game the 5 match T20i series hangs in balance with a slight edge to the Caribbean Team as they will be the host and better aware of the conditions. Pakistan has been successful in the recent test matches recently and we hope that they extend that form in this tour as well.
