Pakistan consolidate top position on ICC’s T20I points table with win against Windies

Top-ranked Pakistan swept West Indies 3-0 in their Twenty20 series with another thumping eight-wicket victory in the last match on Tuesday.

Pakistan rode Babar Azam’s (51) second successive half-century and Fakhar Zaman’s 40 off 17 balls to reach 154-2 in 16.5 overs.

West Indies, batting first for the first time in the series, had earlier scored 153-6 after its captain Jason Mohammed won the toss.

“We are trying to play our best cricket and if we continue to play in front of our home crowd, we will only get better and better,” Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said.

Pakistan continued to dominate a weakened West Indies bowling with its opening pair Azam and Zaman putting on 61 runs off only 32 balls.

West Indies opener Andre Fletcher earlier scored 52 off 43 balls and Denesh Ramdin provided late acceleration with a robust 42 off just 18 balls which gave the tourists their best total in the series.
