1988 - Pakistan vs. West Indies - Classic Series

In the first of Minden Cricket’s Classic Series packs, we bring you Pakistan in the West Indies from 1988. While this three Test series is remembered as a tense, monumental battle that saw the Windies loose their first home match in a decade, the Pakistan team had low expectations before the start of the Tour.

As the team readied itself for the trip to the West Indies, Imran Khan was a retired former great all rounder, and Pakistan's bowling duo, Wasim Akram and Abdul Qadir, were both injured.

“However, Imran yielded to immense public pressure and a personal request from the President of Pakistan … to come out of retirement,” according to Wisden's report on the Series. Imran’s decision was one “which no-one regretted, for the Test series that followed was an epic one”.

With extraordinary batting from legends such as Viv Richards and Javed Miandad, a player v fan tussle that ended up in court, and a series that provided the Windies with one of their toughest challenges during one of their most dominant periods, this series is a must have for fans of statistical cricket board games.
