West Indies vs Pakistan Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first WI vs PAK Test.
After a rain-affected four-match T20I series resulting in the visitors’ 1-0 victory, proceedings in the ongoing Pakistan’s tour of West Indies are all set to move to cricket’s ancestral format from today.
The two-match Test series will be played at the Sabina Park as West Indies and Pakistan will resume playing Test cricket after four years. Out of a total of 17 Test series that these two teams have played against each other, West Indies have won five times as compared to Pakistan’s six series victories. Having said that, West Indies haven’t beaten Pakistan in a Test series since 2000.
As is the case with series, their head-to-head match record against each other is also quite close with Pakistan having an advantage. Even in the last five Tests, Pakistan lead by 3-2 against West Indies.
