After brushing aside a hapless Windies side yet again with an all round performance, Pakistan will look to grind them down and inflict yet another whitewash as the two sides lock horns in the third and final odi of the rescheduled series.
Pakistan, after winning the toss and electing to bat first got off to a poor start as they lost Fakhar Zaman early. Then, Imam ul Haq and expectedly, captain Babar Azam stitched together a crucial 120 run stand before Imam comically ran himself out. Rizwan, Mohammad Nawaz or even Shadab Khan, no one could really make an impact as Pakistan squandered a chance to go past 300 and ended with 275, 23 of which came in the last two overs.
In response, Windies never got going and the two Mohammad’s, Nawaz and Wasim junior picked 7 wickets amongst themselves and blew apart the visitors as they were skittled out for 155 runs as Pakistan took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
After winning the series comprehensively, Pakistan would like to test their bench strength for the 3rd ODI. The likes of Abdullah Shafiq, Shahnawaz Dhani, who was terrific in the PSL, and Ifthikar Ahmed would fancy their chance to play the game as the hosts would want to have a go at the visitors.
Windies, on the other hand would like to make most of their chances as well as they would want to go through the motions. Jayden Seales, Keemo Paul and newcomer Anderson Philip would want to make their way into the playing 11 and make a mark for them as an important series against Bangladesh beckons.
