INDIAN EXPRESS – Pakistan wrapped up the ODI series in convincing fashion – much the same way they did the T2oI series – against the West Indies in the UAE on Sunday after a 59 run win. The win gives Pakistan a 2-0 win in the three-match ODI series.

West Indies have had a poor show in the UAE and that run continued when first they conceded 337 runs and then with a big target to chase, lost wickets without hurting the scoreboard. Babar Azam once again produced the goods with the bat for Pakistan, scoring a second century in a row and found good support from Shoaib Malik who scored 90.

Late on, Sarfraz Ahmed upped the scoring level with a quick 60 from 47 balls.

In response, Darren Bravo (61) and Kraigg Brathwaite (39) tried to give their side the momentum with a 89 run stand for the second wicket. But with Brathwaite’s dismissal, that continuity was lost.

Marlon Samuels tried to give some edge to the West Indies batting with a 57 but in the end, it was for a lost cause.

  1. Did WICB make things worst by dropping Sammy? I seem to think so. My position will remain so until there is a change in fortune for the team unfortunately!
