Pakistan concluded the third and final match of the T20I series on Tuesday with a win over West Indies by 8 wickets. Held in Karachi after 9 years, home turf proved to be their lucky charm as they completed their perfect hat-trick of 3-0.
West Indies started off well by winning the toss, batting to reach a score of 153-6 – their highest of the three matches. Pakistan, however, easily reached a half-century with their opener Babar Azam in 40 balls, who was later named ‘Man of the Series’. He was supported by Fakhar Zaman who nailed 40 runs in 17 balls. After building a great foundation, both got out, but their legacy was continued by Hussain Talat and Asif Ali. Both chased down 154 in 16.5 overs to win by 8 wickets.
“Karachi has won (people’s) hearts. I want to say that lot of people are hurt with no cricket in Pakistan, but we will try our best to have more,”; Sarfraz Ahmed said.
West Indies captain Jason Mohammed said,”We weren’t good enough again, but happier to play a decent game. There were lots of youngsters in our squad, including myself.”
Fakhar Zaman was titled ‘Man of the Match’.
