Pakistan have won all the four T20I bilateral series they have played against West Indies.
Keeping in mind the T20 World Cup, most of the teams are playing series in this format at present. West Indies and Pakistan will face in the 4-match T20 series starting July 28. The hosts West Indies would like to carry their form after winning 4-1 in the home T20 series against Australia. On the other hand, Pakistan would like to forget the defeat in the ODI and T20I series on the England tour and get the winning momentum before the World Cup.
