Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes that the Men in Green were a bit untidy in the bowling department during the first T20I against West Indies on Wednesday.

West Indies had reached 85/5 off their nine overs before umpires abandoned the game with rain persistently falling at the Kensington Oval.

“Pakistan’s bowling in the nine overs was a bit untidy. They should not have conceded 10 an over on this pitch. Pakistan need to tidy up a little more. Change of pace and cutters by Hasan Ali was a perfect brief or template for the other fast-bowlers,” said Raja while speaking on his official YouTube channel.

“They have to adjust quickly and attack West Indies through their spin because Pakistan have a very good spin options,” he added.

The cricketer-turned-commentator also highlighted the importance of winning the series ahead of the T20 World Cup, later this year.

“We won our previous series against West Indies as well because pitches suit us. So we should make full use of this opportunity to experiment but also win the series. Winning the series against West Indies would be a great morale booster before the T20 World Cup,” he concluded.

The second T20I of the four-match series will be played on July 31 in Guyana.
