3rd T20I: Imad-inspired Pakistan complete 3-0 whitewash over Windies

Pakistan continued their winning run under new T20I captain Sarfraz Ahmed as they beat World T20 champions West Indies by eight wickets in the third match to complete the whitewash in the series at Abu Dhabi on late Tuesday.

Set a paltry target of 104, Pakistan were assisted by Shoaib Malik’s unbeaten 43 off 34 balls. Babar Azam (27*) and Khalid Latif (21) also made important contributions.

For West Indies, in the bowling department, debutante Kesrick Williams was the only successful bowler as he accounted for both Pakistani openers Sharjeel Khan (11) and Latif in the same over.

Earlier, Everyone had placed their bet on Pakistan to whitewash West Indies after the hosts restricted the visitors to 103-5.

Sarfraz Ahmed, after opting to bowl first, once again was assisted by Imad Wasim’s magic. The left-arm spinner bagged three wickets in his four overs and was once on a hat-trick in his second over.

Later, pace variation from the Pakistani bowlers did not allow West Indies to run riot against the hosts who were set a target of 104 by the visitors.

No Windies batsman looked to connect the bat with the ball consistently. Marlon Samuels was the top-scorer for the visitors with 42 off 59 balls courtesy only three boundaries.

The Windies innings was composed of only six boundaries and one maximum.

Imad gave only 21 runs in his four overs, with his last six balls reaping 10 runs.

Post-match presentation

Man-of-the-match and Man-of-the-series Imad Wasim: Nothing, I just work hard and keep faith in the Almighty. It is not a purple patch. I read the batsmen’s footing and try not to offer them width. I think I take pride in my batting, I will not let the team down with the bat too.

Carlos Brathwaite: Pakistan are deserving winners. We will try to put in a better performance in the 50-over format. We need to come better in the 50-over format. I got to review my own performance as captain.

Sarfraz Ahmed: First of all want to thank Almighty. Boys worked very hard in these humid conditions. Coaching staff worked really hard on the fielding, batting and bowling. Our focus was to not be complacent and we were targeting a 3-0 win. We didn’t want a good team to stand back up on its feet. All bowlers bowled well. I try to keep things simple. I am hopeful we will win the ODI series too.
