Pakistan opener Babar Azam may batter Black Caps again
Rohit Sharma can take fab ODI form into Windies T20s
India v West Indies first T20
Pakistan v New Zealand third T20
Pakistan sealed an 11th straight T20 series success with their six-wicket victory over New Zealand in Dubai on Friday but while they won last month's dead-rubber shortest-format clash with Australia, 8-13 looks too short about a 3-0 shutout.
Preference is for Babar Azam to continue his fine run of form and top score for a fifth time in six outings for Sarfraz Ahmed's side. The opener has hit 210 runs against the Black Caps and Aussies.
India are 2-5 for victory in their three-T20 series opener with West Indies in Kolkata so again the best bet looks to be an in-form batsman.
Rohit Sharma slammed two big tons and a 63 in the hosts' 3-1 ODI series-triumph.
B Azam top Pakistan runscorer
1pt 13-5 Betfair
R Sharma top India runscorer
1pt 5-2 bet365
