As it happened: 4th ODI: Pakistan beat West Indies in rain-curtailed match

Toss: Pakistan won the toss and elected to field

Preview: With the series equal at 1-1, hosts West Indies and Pakistan will have to get over the nerve-wracking tie in the third ODI. Friday's game looked to be in the bag for Pakistan until they conceded 38 off the last three overs to settle with an unlikely tie, with wicketkeeper Umar Akmal fluffing a run out off the last ball.

Both captains were left disappointed after the result, and now need to marshall their respective teams with just two matches left to play. West Indies were left indebted to the last-wicket pair of Jason Holder and Kemar Roach, but as skipper Dwayne Bravo admitted on Friday the dot-ball count in the innings was just too high.
