Pakistan beat West Indies in the second T20I of the three-match series at Dubai Cricket Stadium, Dubai on Saturday.

As a result, the hosts take 2-0 unassailable 2-0 lead against the World T20 champions, who had another day to forget in the field.

Windies captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and opted to bowl first.

Both team's fielded an unchanged playing eleven, which meant there was no Muhammad Amir on show for team Pakistan.

The Men in Green had a shaky start when opener Sharjeel Khan departed at the score of just five in the third over on the bowling of Samuel Badree for the second time in the series.

However, opener Khalid Latif (40),captain Sarfraz Ahmed (46*) and veteran Shoaib Malik (37) made useful contributions with the bat, as the hosts finished with a decent score of 160 for the loss of four wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

In reply, the West Indian side was once again rocked by early wickets and only managed to score 144 for the loss of nine wickets in their quota of 20 overs.

For Pakistan, Sohail Tanvir and Hasan Ali picked three wickets each, whereas Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nawaz and Wahab Riaz picked one wicket each.

The final match of the series will be played on Tuesday at Abu Dhabi.

Presentation: 

Sarfraz Ahmed: The credit goes to all the boys. The way we batted, fielded and put effort in the field, it was a real team effort. It is a good sign that all youngsters are performing for Pakistan. I just wanted to come and be positive, and the way Shoaib Malik played with me, the credit goes to him as well. The boys are putting in hard effort in the field, it is visible on their performance as well.

Carlos Brathwaite: We didn’t come to party and we lost the series as a result. 150 would have been a par-score on that track, but we couldn’t bat well. If we would have batted a little better, we could have chased it down. It is disheartening. We all feel it, but Pakistan was a better side.



So till then, its good bye from Azeem Siddiqui and Ali Mangi.



With this win, the hosts takes the three-match series 2-0 with one still to play on Tuesday.



So its all over, and its another victory for team Pakistan and captain Sarfraz Ahmed.

PITCH REPORT: The pitch looks slow and the cracks are opening up. However, it is expected that the captain who wins the toss will opt to bowl first due to hot and humid conditions, which means dew factor will come into play in the second half of the match.
