PORT OF SPAIN: Pakistan defeat West Indies in the fourth and last T20 match of the series.
Pakistan has clinched the series with a 3-1 win.
Pakistan recorded a seven-wicket victory over West Indies in the fourth and final Twenty20 International here at the Queen’s Park Oval on Sunday.
Thus they clinched the four-match T20I series 3-1 in the Caribbean after a clean sweep in the three-match series in the United Arab Emirates last September.
This is Sarfraz Ahmed’s seventh win in his eight T20Is as captain.
Chasing an easy target of 125, Pakistan completed the imposing victory in 19 overs with a brilliant half-century by opener Ahmed Shehzad.
He made 53 off 45 balls with six fours and a six while Babar Azam scored 38 with one six and one four. Kamran Akmal contributed 20.
Earlier, Pakistani bowlers restricted West Indies batsmen to 124 -8 in the 20 overs.
Sent into bat by Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, West Indies batsmen could not resist against accurate bowling by young Pakistani bowlers, especially against right-arm pacer Hasan Ali and leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who claimed two wickets each for 12 and 16 runs, respectively.
Among other bowlers, Rumman Raees, Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz took one wicket each.
Opener Chadwick Walton top scored with 40 with four sixes and two fours while captain Carlos Brathwaite scored an unbeaten 37 with two sixes and as many fours.
