Pakistan beats West Indies by 3 runs in second T20

Pakistan won the second of a four-match T20 International series against West Indies by three runs at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad on Thursday.

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and put Pakistan in to bat. The team restricted Pakistan at 132 runs.

The West Indies have retained the same eleven that suffered a six-wicket defeat – their fifth consecutive T20 loss to the Pakistanis – in the opening match in Bridgetown.

They were seeking a series-levelling victory ahead of the final two matches at the same venue at the weekend.

Pakistan introduced newcomer Fakhar Zaman following the outstanding debut performance in Barbados of leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who took the Man of the Match award with figures of three for seven.

The 26-year-old left-handed batsman and occasional left-arm spinner is getting his first taste of senior international action at the expense of Mohammad Hafeez.
