The Green Shirts will be looking to win their next match to move up to the fourth place, ahead of the West Indies, and to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series. With a clean sweep, Pakistan will tie for third place on points with Afghanistan.
Pakistan chased down a target of 306 with 5 wickets in hand and 4 balls to spare, setting a new record for run-chase against the West Indies. The previous highest run chase against the West Indies occurred in Abu Dhabi in 2018, when Pakistan chased down 295 runs.
Babar Azam was the star of the show, scoring his 17th international century, while wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan and opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq smashed half-centuries. Khushdil Shah, an explosive middle-order batsman, played the match-winning innings, smashing 41 runs off 23 balls to get the side over the line.
