Shadab Khan stars as Pakistan clean-sweep West Indies series

Shadab Khan Hit a Half-Century

Allrounder Shadab Khan hit a half-century before taking four wickets to steer Pakistan’s 53-run win over the West Indies in the third day-night international in Multan. The play was interrupted by a dust storm.

Shadab hit 86 to take Pakistan to 269-9 after unlikely West Indian hero Nicholas Pooran took four wickets to leave the home team struggling at 117-5.

Babar Azam Fell for Just One off Three Balls

Opener Imam scored a brilliant 68-ball 62 but there was a failure for world number one ODI batsman Babar Azam who fell for just one off three balls.

Shadab Khan Gave His Team 30 Invaluable Points

Shadab Khan’s leg-spin then fetched 4-62 to dismiss the tourists for 216 in 37.2 overs, giving his team 30 invaluable points in the ODI Super League – a qualification threshold for next year’s World Cup in India.

Pakistan Clean Sweep West Indies

The 3-0 clean-sweep lifted the hosts to 90 points, fourth in the 13-team ODI League table while West Indians are fifth with 80.

Tenth Consecutive ODI Series Victory Over The West Indies

A dust storm during Pakistan’s innings forced the match to 48 overs-a-side but that could not stop the home side from taking a tenth consecutive ODI series victory over the West Indies.

Pakistan Won The First Match Five Wickets

Pakistan won the first match by a whopping five wickets and the second by 120 runs. Both the matches were also played in Multan.

Shadab dismissed Rovman Powell (ten), Keacy Carty (33), and top-scorer Akeal Hosein for 60.

Hosein and Romario Shepherd added 49 for the eighth wicket but both fell within 12 runs to end a miserable series.

Left-arm spinner Nawaz had Brooks and Keemo Paul (21), finishing with 2-56.

Opener Shai Hope (21), Pooran (11), Shamarh Brooks (18), and Powell got good starts but fell to rash shots.

Shadab Khan Weilded His Bat To The Best Effect

The innings seemed to have fallen apart with Babar Azam‘s rare failure for one but Shadab wielded his bat to the best effect.
