Pakistan and West Indies have similar kind of fate in the tournament with two wins and one loss against India, both with a margin of 7 wickets.
Their wins over Bangladesh helped them pan in a similar fashion, where a win in today’s match will be a decider.
This well can be a battle for the spinners, who must take the advantage of Mirpur ground. While Pakistan has all eyes set on Saeed Ajmal, West Indies will have to bank on Sunil Narine.
Pakistan skipper Mohammed Hafeez rightfully said there is no room for mistakes and team that plays spinners well will win. West Indian team also has leg-spinner Samuel Badree, who can change the game.
For Pakistan, they can still depend on Zulfiqar Babar to a large extent, while the damage that Shahid Afridi can do is often unpredictable.

How Pakistan deals with unstoppable Chris Gayle is also something worth watching today. Then there is skipper Sammy, who has performed well to boost the team.
Strange enough, West Indies has spinner Saqlain Mushtaq for advice, who was once a part of the opponent team, but Hafeez doesn’t seem to consider that a big factor.
Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad, with their huge scores, will be the batting stars today as they take on Narine’s tough balls.
