GUYANA – On a slower pitch, Pakistan spinners restrict West Indies to 233/9 in the third and final ODI of the series on Tuesday at Providence Stadium, Guyana.
West Indies skipper Jason Holder won the third toss on the trot and opted to bat first this time. The decision did not do much good for the team as both openers lost wickets after getting steady starts. Lewis (16), Walton (19) and Powell left for 23. West Indies were 68-3 in 18the over. Things were already very slow for them.
Realizing the slowness of the pitch, J Mohammed and Hope took their time and built up a foundation for the lower middle order to play big shots in last part of the innings. The two scored 101 runs for the fourth-wicket partnership. J Mohemmed (59) and SD Hope scored invaluable 79 runs.
Holder (12 ), Carter (11 ) and Nurse (10) struggled hard to get the total to 233/9.
