West Indies all-out 175 in 38.4 overs.Pakistan won by 111 runs (D/L method)

West Indies wins the toss and they decide to field first. One change for Pakistan,Wahab Riaz is in for Umar Gul.

Pakistan line-up:

Azhar Ali, Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Imad Wasim and Hasan Ali.

Pakistan skipper, Azhar Ali, is back to helm the team and will play on top of the order along with Sharjeel Khan. The other six players of the top order are the same that were part of the t20 squad.

On the other hand, West Indies are most likely to pick the same XI that played the last game against Australia. Since no Andre Fletcher is playing in this series, either Evin Lewis or Jonathan Carter might open the innings alongside Johnson Charles.
