Pakistan vs West Indies, 3rd T20I: Sarfraz Ahmed and co complete clean sweep over world champions
In the 2nd T20I, Pakistan defeated the West Indians by 16 runs to clinch the three-match series 2-0.
New Delhi: It is not often that Pakistan is seen dominating a T20 series, that too against the world champions West Indies. But that has been the case in the three-match T20I duel between Pakistan and West Indies.
Playing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Sarfraz Ahmed-led side has showed just how dangerous they can be against even the specialists in shortest format of the game.

Sarfraz won the toss for the Men in Green and his team posted a total of 160 runs thanks to valuable contributions from Khalid Latif, Shoaib Malik and the skipper himself. The bowlers in return restricted West Indies to just 144 runs, securing a 16-run victory for their side.
Sohail Tanvir was unarguably Pakistan's best performer with the ball, picking up three wickets for just 13 runs. Hasan Ali supported him very well too in the bowling attack.
Pakistan have no injury worries at the moment and will most likely field the same XI for the final game in a bid to complete a clean sweep.
