Pakistan set Windies 138 to win in third T20

Pakistan set Windies 138 to win in third T20”

Pakistan's Shadab Khan (centre) embraces skipper Sarfraz Ahmed after their win over West Indies in Port of Spain on Thursday.

The 18-year-old struck the telling blow with the final delivery of his spell, a googly that top-scorer Marlon Samuels (44 off 35 balls), could only edge behind to reduce Windies - at one stage 60-1 - to 81-6.

Playing in front of a crowd of more than 6,000, the diminutive left-hander went ballistic upon the Pakistani bowlers, striking five fours and an incredible nine sixes from just 51 balls, as the Windies successfully chased 138 on a docile Queen's Park Oval pitch to claim their first victory in six global matches on home soil for the year. He won his second consecutive man-of-the-match award.

O'Rourke to Announce Cruz Challenge on Friday
Hardly anyone in state or national politics considers it realistic that the national party will heavily invest in this race. The two congressmen live-streamed the road trip from Texas to Washington on Facebook Live, the Huffington Post reported .

The first-match hero Shadab Khan once again prevailed and took 4 wickets off just 14 runs in his 4 overs.

"It's been a bit of a struggle since getting that hundred against India (last August in Fort Lauderdale) but I'm delighted to be back among the runs".

The next two T20s between Pakistan and West Indies will also be played in the same venue followed by three One Day Internationals (ODIs) in Guyana and three Test Matches. Meanwhile, let us take a look at the highlights from the 3rd T20I.

After Match Play, can anyone beat Dustin Johnson?
Those answers could be construed as elusive rhetoric from any other player, but in Johnson's case, it's just the plain truth. At the 16th Rahm brilliantly holed from 31ft, meaning Johnson was suddenly only one hole ahead with two to play.

Veteran Kamran Akmal (48) and Babar Azam (43) had the visitors well poised for a total in excess of 160 as they put on 88 runs for the second wicket after Samuel Badree had removed Ahmed Shehzad and Imad Wasim in the first over of the match. The next ball, new batsman Lendl Simmons hit the winning boundary.

Babar missed his half-century too, by seven runs, as Pakistan lost six wickets for 40 in their last eight overs - and despite the early loss of Chadwick Walton in the run chase, Lewis made light of the task by dominating half-century stands with Samuels and then debutant Jason Mohammed.

Badree was the most successful West Indies bowler with 2-22 from his allotted four overs.
