In the 3rd Twenty-20 matches being played between Pakistan and West Indies, Pakistan has scored 137 runs in 20 overs. The opponent team needs to score 138 runs to win the game. Victory in this game is necessary for West Indies as Pakistan has already acquired 2-0 lead in the series of four T20 matches.
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first. Pakistan’s decision to bat first seemed wrong when Ahmed Shehzad was bowled out by Badree in very first over. After his departure, next batsman Imad Wasim lost his wicket without scoring a single run.
Kamran Akmal (48 runs) and Babar Azam (43 runs) succeeded in stabilising on the ground and set up a good base of team’s score. Their partnership of 90 runs ended with the wicket of Kamran Akmal in 13th over. Shoaib Malik, who performed well in first two matches, didn’t manage to keep continuity in his performance in this game.
Fakhar Zaman tried to settle on the pitch, but unfortunately lost his wicket and scored 21 runs. Other players in the batting lineup lost their wickets without scoring good runs for the team. Pakistan lost eight wickets in 20 overs and set up the target of 138 runs for the antagonist team.
