208/3 (18.5/20)
207/3 (20.0/20)
Pakistan beat West Indies by 7 wickets
Right then! That is all we have from this game and unfortunately from this tour as well. The ODI series has forcibly been called off for now due to covid and will now take place in June 2022. Pakistan have swept away the T20I series. There is still a lot of cricket taking place around the world and you can catch our coverage of the Ashes live on 17 December, Friday. The action begins at 02:30 pm local time (04:00 am GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!
Babar Azam, the Pakistan skipper, says that they wanted to play according to the situation and they wanted to play till the end by keeping run-scoring going. He adds that youngsters have done very well and bench strength has done well whenever given chance. He adds that they are preparing well for the T20 World Cup and they have momentum on their side. He applauds Mohammad Rizwan for his performance and how he has worked on his game.
The Windies skipper, Nicholas Pooran says that he felt they lost momentum in the last two overs when they were batting and applauds the Pakistani bowlers for their efforts and feels like they were 20 runs short. He mentions that they hardly got any sleep last night due to the covid situation and he is really proud of the boys and mentions that it takes a lot of mental strength to come out here and play. He adds that the guys did get better and better as the series progressed and they have a lot of young guys in the squad and it is a great platform for them to showcase their talent.
Mohammad Rizwan is the Player of the Match and Player of the Series. He says that 200 is a huge total and they wanted to capitalize on the Powerplay. He adds that he keeps everything to god and he goes match by match and does not think of stats. He mentions that he has worked on his go-to shot on the on the side and he is continuously trying to up the game.
... The Presentation Ceremony ...
Pakistan have just been on a roll in T20Is in 2021! They seem to have all bases covered and no matter if they bat first or second, they look likely to win. Having set a daunting task tonight, skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan yet again delivered for their team. The pair put on a 158-run stand for the first wicket and that set them on course to win the match with ease. After Babar fell, Rizwan still played his shots but maybe he a got a little tired in the end and gave his wicket away. Fakhar Zaman did hit some lusty blows as well and in the end, Asif Ali added the finishing touches with his quickfire cameo. The hosts put on yet another dominating batting performance tonight and they will be more than pleased to have won the series 3-0.

Romario Shepherd To Asif Ali
Dropped on Free Hit and Pakistan win! A full ball, on off. Asif Ali gets under it and looks to smash it over long on. Gets it high but fails to get enough distance and the ball goes straight to Rovman Powell at long on. He drops it and a single is taken. So Pakistan win by seven wickets!
After all that has been going on for the last couple of days, West Indies went out to bat with a positive mindset and when they went into the break with a score of 200+ on the board, they must have felt they had done enough. The bowling really let them down tonight and apart from a couple of bowlers, no one ever looked likely to pick up a wicket. Gudakesh Motie on debut did a fantastic job up front as he did not give away many runs. The pacers just couldn't control the middle overs and the two Pakistani openers were allowed to just maneuver the play. Finally, the breakthrough did come in the 16th over but by that time the required rate was under the opposition's control. Drakes and Shepherd did pick up a wicket each at the death but it all went in vain and the visitors will be truly disappointed with their bowling effort.
Pakistan have just breezed through what should have been a difficult chase and have clean swept the T20I series, 3-0! This is the hosts' highest ever successful run-chase and it was achieved with the minimum of fuss. West Indies will be disappointed tonight as this was their best chance of getting that elusive first win of the series.

BREAKING NEWS! The 3-match ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies, due to start from Saturday, 18th December, 2021, has been POSTPONED TO JUNE 2022. This has come in the wake of too many players testing positive for Covid-19 in the West Indian squad. As a result, they have only 15 fit players as of now and both boards have unanimously agreed to postpone the ODI leg, given the depletion of the tourists' squad.

Dominic Drakes sees Rizwan shuffling across the stumps and delivers a slower ball. This is full in length and outside off stump. Rizwan looks to paddle it away but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball rolls onto the off side as they scamper through for a single..
Looks like Mohammad Rizwan has pulled his hamstring while turning back to the batter's end. He is getting some treatment now and is all set to resume now.

A slight mix-up and that could have been catastrophic for Pakistan. A length ball, on the pads and this is tucked away to deep mid-wicket. Rizwan wants the second and is halfway through but Azam sends him back and rightly so. The fielder doesn't collect the ball cleanly and Rizwan is able to make it back. He is though on the ground, holding his hamstring. Hope he is fine.

The ball races away into the fine leg fence as Rizwan becomes the first batter to surpass 2000 runs in a calendar year in T20Is.
DRINKS! This is exactly the start a team needs when chasing such a big total and Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have provided it for Pakistan, but there is still a lot of work to be done. West  Indies bowlers haven't looked like picking a wicket so far but they should have belief that a couple of wickets in the next few overs and the required rate will start to rise yet again. 110 needed off 60 deliveries. Oshane Thomas is into the attack now.

Quicker one, on the pads. Rizwan tucks it away on the leg side for one. Pakistan are underway.
Review! Mohammad Rizwan has been given out here LBW and he has reviewed it. The replays roll in and the Ball Tracker shows that it is missing stumps. So the decision will be overturned and Mohammad Rizwan survives.

Gudakesh Motie To Mohammad Rizwan
NOT OUT! Gudakesh Motie almost picks up a wicket off his first-ever delivery in international cricket. On a length, around middle and Mohammad Rizwan is one one knee looking to sweep it away. He misses and gets hit on the chest. The visitors appeal and the umpire raises his fingers. Rizwan reviews it. UltraEdge shows that there's no bat involved but Ball Tracker shows that the ball is going over middle stump. Brilliant review and Rizwan survives.
