West Indies roar back to win 3rd T20 easily

Shadab Khan's performance helps Pakistan sneak to victory

West Indies' hopes of earning a series draw with Pakistan were boosted with a seven-wicket win in the third T20 global in Trinidad, on Saturday.

Chasing a relatively modest target of 133 runs to level the series following their sixwicket defeat in the opening match in Barbados, West Indies were restricted to 129 for eight to slump to their fifth consecutive T20 defeat at the hands of the visitors.

Lewis celebrated with another six high over deep square leg off the same bowler two balls later and he never eased up, saving his best for Tanveer's third over.

But everything else in the match paled in comparison to Lewis' relentless assault which ended with victory in sight as Wahab Riaz held the catch at long-off to give Shadab Khan the wicket.

Lewis smashed nine sixes and five boundaries.

Samuels' first delivery was an inviting waist-high full toss which Akmal attempted to heave out of the ground but could only find Lendl Simmons on the midwicket boundary.

Lewis-Marlon Samuels's patient stand of 56: Since Lewis was involved in a couple of decent partnerships, the first one came along with veteran Marlon Samuels. Lewis plundered 18 off medium-fast bowler Sohail Tanvir in the penultimate over. Ahmed Shehzad, last seen taken off on a stretcher with his neck in a brace on Thursday, was cleared to play but he was out in the second ball of the match, charging and missing West Indies legspinner Samuel Badree.

Two balls later, Badree struck again, when left-hander Imad Wasim, promoted to three, reached for a delivery outside the off-stump, lost his balance and was stumped for a duck to leave the visitors four for two.

Kamran made 48 off 37 balls with four boundaries and two sixes while Babar scored 43 off 38 balls with three fours and a six.

Azam was on 34 at the time.

His assault was in stark contrast to the struggles of most of the Pakistani batsmen, with the notable exception of Kamran Akmal and Babar Azam, as a strong position was frittered away by the combination of careless strokeplay and disciplined West Indies bowling through the final eight overs of their innings.
