Pakistan Whitewash West Indies 3-0 in T20 Series


Pakistan comprehensively defeated World Twenty20 Champions West Indies in the third T20 by 8 wickets to complete the 3-0 whitewash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Batting first, West Indies scored 103 runs in stipulated overs. Pakistan achieved the victory target with 108 runs in 15.1 overs for the loss of two wickets.

Left-arm spinner Imad Wasim chipped in with 3-21 — nine wickets in the series — as West Indies crawled to 103-5 in their 20 overs after Pakistan once again caught them napping by putting them in on a slow and low Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan then wiped off the target with Shoaib Malik, who made 43 not out, hitting the winning six off the first ball of the 15th over. Marlon Samuels scored 42 not out while Kieron Pollard made an unbeaten 16.

Immad Wasim was declared Man of the Match and Series. 

The two teams will now play a three-match one-day series starting in Sharjah on Friday. They also play three Tests with the first in Dubai — their first-ever day-night Test — from October 13.
