Pakistan vs West Indies 2nd T20I Highlights: Romareo Shepherd's cameo was not enough as Pakistan were able to win the 2nd T20I by 9 runs to seal the three-match series. Shaheen Shah Afridi's three wickets in the 17th over turned out to be crucial. West Indies lost their way after Brandon King was dismissed for 67. Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Wasim picked two wickets apiece in the middle to give Pakistan the advantage. The visitors lost opener Shai Hope early in the run-chase and then Mohammad Nawaz put an end to Shamarah Brooks' brief stay in the middle. Earlier, Shadab Khan hit two sixes in the last over to help Pakistan post 172 for 8. Odean Smith picked up 2 for 24 in his 3 overs. West Indies had made a strong comeback in the match by picking the wickets of Haider Ali (31) and Mohammad Nawaz in quick succession. Mohammed Rizwan (38) and Haider once again threatened to take the game away but both of them could not convert their starts. An error of judgement by both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan ended the former's innings early after Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat first. Pakistan pretty much outplayed West Indies in all three departments, beating them comprehensively by 63 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series opener on Monday. (SCORECARD)
