Commentary (West Indies innings)

That's all from this match. The last T20I will be played tomorrow, so do join us at 1230 local (1630 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!

West Indies skipper, Carlos Brathwaite says he's very pleased with the attitude and passion shown by his team. Adds the way his team pulled it back after the first 5 overs was splendid. Mentions it was good to restrict Pakistan to 130 as at one stage they were looking good for 160. Lauds Evin Lewis for his phenomenal knock and also credits Jason Mohammed for the way he played with so much positivity on debut. Also adds that he wants his boys to do the same tomorrow. Credits his boys for the perfect game as they showed a lot of intensity and passion, especially towards the end of the innings with the ball. Thanks the fans for coming out and wants to give them something in return for their massive support.

Man of the Match, Evin Lewis says that he is really happy with his performance. Remembers that he got run out in the last two games and is pleased to contribute today. Adds that he stays positive and tries to give good start to the team. Also says that he is working hard on his game in the nets.

Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed says he doesn't think they got a good total. Adds Babar Azam and Kamran Akmal played well but the rest of his team couldn't end well. States two of their set batsmen got out at the wrong time. Mentions it wasn't their day as Evin Lewis played a blinder of a knock. Ends by saying that they would like to come back hard and win the series in the final game.

That was a stroll in the park for the West Indies. Chasing a target of 138 on a slowish track, they lost Chadwick Walton cheaply but Evin Lewis rose to the occasion. He once again showed his hitting prowess as he plundered 91 runs off just 51 balls to single-handedly take West Indies home. It was a relatively low target and a couple of fifty stands were enough to scale it down. Pakistan were dismal with the ball and their fielding wasn't great either. Series now stands 2-1 and West Indies have given themselves a chance to draw level.

14.5 S Khan to L Simmons, FOUR! West Indies win by 7 wickets and 31 balls to spare! Flatter and shorter around off, 95 kph, Simmons gets back and forces it straight down the ground, beating mid on for a boundary. Handshakes all around and the crowd is celebrating. 138/3

Lendl Simmons walks into the middle next with the bat.

14.4 S Khan to E Lewis, OUT! Lewis holes out but not before doing the damage. Just 4 more needed off 32 balls. Flighted full ball on middle, probably a googly, Lewis swings his bat hard and mistimes his shot down to long off. Wahab Riaz in the deep runs in a bit, nearly misjudges but then does well to catch it in the end. Smile on his face says it all. 134/3

14.3 S Khan to E Lewis, Googly around off, Lewis taps it down to short third man. 134/2

14.2 S Khan to E Lewis, SIX! Bang! Evin Lewis in this mood is very dangerous. Pakistan's neighbouring country India know it as the southpaw hit a quickfire century against them. Flatter and fuller on middle, Lewis clobbers it over cow corner for a maximum. This is now the highest score for a West Indies batsman in T20Is against Pakistan. 134/2

Fielding letting Pakistan down and this is not the first time you are reading this statement. 81/2

Jason Mohammed is the next batsman in.

7.6 W Riaz to M Samuels, OUT! Change in pace has worked for Wahab. He dishes out a slower short ball around off, Samuels sticks back to his crease, fails to read the variation and is early into the shot. As a result, he ends up chipping it in the air and straight to Imad Wasim at long off. He makes no mistake and pumps his fist in celebration. Riaz is ecstatic.

7.4 W Riaz to M Samuels, Wide! Riaz sees the batsman backing away towards leg and bowls it full and wide outside off, Samuels leaves it alone and it's wided. The margin of error for bowlers is very less in this format. 58/1

7.2 W Riaz to M Samuels, On a length and around off, Marlon brings down an angled bat and guides it towards third man for a run. 56/1

5.5 H Ali to E Lewis, The batsman opens the face of the bat and helps it to third man. They pick up a single. 45/1

5.4 H Ali to E Lewis, SIX! Monstrous hit! A 94m hit, talk about sweet connection on that. Back of a length, Lewis who is waiting for this, walks out a step and muscles the pull deep into the stands over the wide long on fence for a maximum. 44/1

5.3 H Ali to E Lewis, Outside off on a length, shaping away, played away to point. Dot ball. 38/1

5.2 H Ali to M Samuels, Samuels gets big and works this shortish ball in front of mid-wicket. The run is on and there is a shy at the bowler's end. It misses so the batsman is safe. Single completed. 38/1

5.1 H Ali to M Samuels, Length delivery on off, Samuels with the full face of the blade blocks it back down the track. 37/1

Hasan Ali comes into the attack.

4.6 I Wasim to E Lewis, SIX! He's finally cut loose here. He's hit that with real power! Fuller outside off, Lewis stands his ground and swings with everything he's got. Doesn't middle it but it's still enough to clear the long on fence comfortably for a biggie. 37/1

4.5 I Wasim to E Lewis, SIX! BANG! Full on the stumps, Lewis gets low and slog sweeps it over the mid-wicket boundary for a maximum. 31/1

4.4 I Wasim to E Lewis, That's great work out in the deep by the two fielders. A complete contrast to the two West Indies fielders, Holder and Lewis, earlier. Short and flat around off, it's pulled through mid-wicket. Zaman first dives to his right to get a hand to it, then Shehzad who comes running towards him from long on slides and keeps the ball away from touching the ropes. Good effort. You need such athleticism especially when you're defending a relatively low total. Only two runs are taken. 25/1

4.3 I Wasim to M Samuels, Works this through the gap in the mid-wicket region for another single. 23/1

4.2 I Wasim to E Lewis, The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. The batsmen have run through for a single. 22/1

4.1 I Wasim to M Samuels, Comes down the wicket and eases it to long on for one. 21/1

3.6 S Tanvir to E Lewis, FOUR! Outside off, on a back of a length, Lewis opens the face and guides it late across the third man fence for a boundary. 20/1

3.5 S Tanvir to E Lewis, Angling into the left-hander on a bit of a fuller length, it raps Lewis on the pads while he attempts to go big over the leg side. 16/1

3.4 S Tanvir to E Lewis, THAT'S IN THE AIR... BUT IT'S JUST, JUST SHORT! Oh, that was really close. Fuller length delivery on off, Lewis doesn't time this well at all. Ends up chipping it just in front of Imad Wasim who dives forward to take a low catch but cannot make it. 16/1

3.3 S Tanvir to M Samuels, Length delivery around off, hits it across the line, in the air but well short of mid on. A run is taken. 16/1

3.3 S Tanvir to M Samuels, Wide! But that's a poor call from the umpire. It's definitely gone off something, most likely off the pad. There was clearly some noise. Samuels looks to flick this fullish length ball down the leg side but fails to do so. 15/1

3.2 S Tanvir to E Lewis, Fractionally ahead of a length from Tanvir, outside off, Lewis plays this square of the wicket on the off side for a single. 14/1

3.1 S Tanvir to E Lewis, FOUR! Full and wide outside off, with room on offer Evin Lewis cannot resist. He throws his bat at this and gets it off the outer half. Clears the point fielder and gets a boundary to his name. 13/1

2.6 I Wasim to M Samuels, Marlon Samuels has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. Another good over from Imad. Just 2 off it. 9/1

2.5 I Wasim to M Samuels, Darts this full and flat outside off, Samuels dances down the track and drives but can only hit it in the direction of the bowler. Another dot ball. 9/1

2.5 I Wasim to M Samuels, Wide! Slips this down the leg side, easy call for the umpire. Wide signalled. 9/1

2.4 I Wasim to E Lewis, This time the southpaw makes connection and cuts it away towards point for a single. 8/1

2.3 I Wasim to E Lewis, Just back of a length, around off, Evin Lewis once again stays back to cut it hard but is beaten past the outside edge. 7/1

2.2 I Wasim to E Lewis, On the shorter side of things, this time Lewis offers a back foot punch to mid off. 7/1

2.1 I Wasim to E Lewis, Flat, short and outside off, Evin backs away and punches it away to cover-point for nothing. 7/1

1.6 S Tanvir to M Samuels, Outside off, on a back of a length, Samuels taps it in front of covers. Lewis wants the run but is sent back. Would have been safe even if the shy at the bowler's end hit. 7/1

1.5 S Tanvir to M Samuels, FOUR! Poor ball and that's dispatched. He'll feast on them all day. Full on the pads, Marlon flicks it in front of square easily. There's a huge gap there and the ball races away to the fence for a boundary. 7/1

1.4 S Tanvir to M Samuels, Good, tight line from Tanvir. He hurls this on a length aiming the top of off stump, doesn't give Samuels any room to do anything but defend. 3/1

1.3 S Tanvir to E Lewis, Tailing back in on middle and leg, worked away on the leg side for a single. 3/1

Marlon Samuels is the next man in.

1.2 S Tanvir to C Walton, OUT! Tanvir strikes instantly! Not a great delivery though from Tanvir, he fires it fuller on the pads, Walton flicks it aerially over square leg. Fakhar Zaman out in the deep comes running in and dives forward to pouch it in both his hands. This dismissal is similar to how Shoaib Malik got out earlier in the first innings. Zaman did well to time the dive and take the catch. Pakistan off to a good start. 2/1

1.1 S Tanvir to C Walton, Back of a length delivery going across, Chadwick Walton stands tall, looks to cut but gets an inside edge onto his pads. No run taken. 2/0

Sohail Tanvir will bowl from the other end.

0.6 I Wasim to C Walton, First runs of the bat for West Indies. Walton eases this down to long on for a single. Good first over from Imad Wasim. Just 2 runs off it. 2/0

0.5 I Wasim to C Walton, Full and darted flat on middle and off, Walton with the full face of the bat pushes it back to the bowler by leaning ahead. 1/0

0.4 I Wasim to E Lewis, Short and flat, going slightly down leg, goes off Lewis' pads as he goes for the big pull. A leg bye is taken. 1/0

0.3 I Wasim to E Lewis, Fullish in length from Imad, it's played back to him by the southpaw. 0/0

0.2 I Wasim to E Lewis, Short and wide outside off, cut away to point off the back foot towards point. 0/0

0.1 I Wasim to E Lewis, From around the wicket, Wasim attacks the stumps without wasting any time. Bowls it flat and on a length as Lewis goes back to push it back down the track. 0/0
