Pakistan has won the T20 series against West Indies 2-0 by registering an 82-run victory over the visitors in the 2nd T20 match on Monday; the two teams will meet each other in the 3rd T20 match at Karachi on 3rd April. Although the contest is a dead rubber, the hosts will try to make it a complete 3-0 whitewash here in the first T20 international series being played on home soil in 9 years. The Windies will fight hard to register a face-saving win with an all-round performance; it needs to be seen if Pakistan continues with its winning momentum or if the Windies can make a much-needed turnaround.
Babar Azam and Hussain Talat powered through the innings batting first to give the home side a 205-run total against West Indies in the 2nd match. While Azam stayed unbeaten at 97, Hussain Talat scored 63 off 41; the latter had done well in the opening match and adds stability to the batting line-up at the top-order.
Fast-bowler Mohammad Amir claimed 3-22 to stun the visitors again; spinner Shadab Khan and Hussain Talat took 2 wickets each while spinner Mohammad Nawaz and speedster Hasan Ali pitched in with a wicket each to help win the match by 82 runs. In the earlier match too, Nawaz and Amir had taken 2 wickets each while part-timers like Shoaib Malik had also contributed with a 2-wicket haul.
Previously, captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik and opener Fakhar Zaman had scored well with the bat to get them to a 203-run total in the first match; they have a sturdy top and middle order which can strike hard again on Tuesday.

West Indies once again succumbed to the hosts’ powerful batting performance with bowlers like Odean Smith, Kesrick Williams and Rayad Emrit proving to be expensive despite taking a wicket each. Samuel Badree and Keemo Paul tried to contain the Pakistani batsmen but in vain; they have a good mix of pacers but haven’t been effective with no time for preparation at all.
The batsmen struggled during the chase except the welcome change of Chadwick Walton’s well-made 40 that consisted 5 fours and couple of sixes. Wicket-keeper batsman Denesh Ramdin fought hard by scoring 21 runs while captain Jason Mohammed and Keemo Paul tried to keep the scoreboard ticking. However, the others failed to up the ante and they lost by 82 runs.
The Windies have been caught off-guard in this T20 series, after a successful run at the World Cup qualifiers; they will be determined to do better in the upcoming match and redeem themselves.
