Earlier in the first T20 game at Kensington Oval in Barbados on March 26, Pakistan thrashed West Indies by six wickets as the Visitors while batting second reached an easy target of 112 runs in 17.1 overs for the loss of four wickets.

West Indies (probable): Evin Lewis, Chadwick Walton (wk), Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Keiron Pollard, Rovman Powell/Jason Mohammad, Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Sunil Narine, Jason Holder, Samuel Badree, Kesrick Williams. His fine knock came of 51 deliveries, which included five boundaries and nine monstrous sixes, along with a strike rate of 178, which was certainly enough to snatch the game away from Pakistan.

Samuels late cut Shadab to square third-man to take West Indies past 50, but he was caught at long-off for 18 from a mistimed drive at a slower delivery from left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz off the last ball of the eighth over.

Kamran Akmal helped Pakistan wade through first power play as he managed to score crucial 48 runs. He earned second consecutive man of the match award.

"We are still ahead in the series though and I expect a much better effort in the last match".

Samuel Badree had removed Ahmed Shehzad and Imad Wasim in the first over of the match.

But the breakthrough for the Windies came from an unlikely source, when Marlon Samuels came on to bowl and had Akmal caught at deep mid-wicket with his first delivery, a high, loose, full toss - if ever there was one - in the 13th over.

Pakistan struggled for runs the rest of the way with a desperate West Indies team batting to limit the total to manageable proportions.

The next two T20s between Pakistan and West Indies will also be played in the same venue followed by three One Day Internationals (ODIs) in Guyana and three Test Matches. Shadab Khan has been the most successful bowler for Pakistan in this series and the visitors will be depending on the youngster to guide them to a much-needed series win.
