Most Test teams touring the West Indies expect to win handsomely. The days are gone, when West Indies could dominate any side, anywhere around the world. Yet it was Pakistan, in 1997 under Mushtaq Mohammad’s captaincy West Indies were defeated.

With Misbah ul Haq’s team, been at the top of the rankings as recently as 6 months ago, and West Indies consistently throwing away games, the 3 upcoming Test matches at Jamaica are expected to be BORING due to lack of visitors. However Pakistan’s cricket fans would be delighted to know they have a high chance of their team whitewashing WI in this Test series. But I do have to spoil the party for them..

-If Pakistan wins series 3-0, they will stay at current position of No. 5
-If West Indies wins series 3-0, then Pakistan will move to NO. 7 in Test Rankings.. “Mind-Explosion”
-If WI beats Pakistan 2-1, Pakistan will move to 6th spot.
-If Pakistan beat WI 2-1, Nothing would happen, WI and Pakistan will stay at current positions.

Pakistan must win 2-1 to stay in Top 5, otherwise fans are going to be Disappointed.

Coming to the Sad part, (no, I am not talking about Pakistan losing 3-0)

Younis Khan

Misbah ul Haq, and Younis Khan have announced retirement due after the test series. Younis khan has played 115 matches in his Test career and has scored 9,977 runs. In the upcoming series against the West Indies, Younis Khan should be aiming towards becoming the first Pakistani added to the 12 cricketers to have crossed 10,000 international Test runs.

Shadab Khan

Shadab has broken into the Pakistan test squad after impressing the selectors in limited overs cricket, and we hope he continues to. Shadab has taken 10 wickets in the 4 match T20 series against WI, and 5 wickets in the 3 match ODI series. A prodigious turner of the ball, teenage legspinner Shadab Khan burst onto cricket's collective consciousness only during the 2016/17 PSL season. His ability to take wickets while maintaining an excellent economy rate saw him talked up as that most frequent of phenomena: an exciting Pakistani prospect. Shadab is not afraid of bowling the wrong'un either.

Well this is it for my Article so far. I do hope to get some feedback.
