11.00pm If yesterday was a nightmare, today has been much the same story for West Indies. Is it jet lag? Is it lack of time to acclimatise? Is it lack of planning? They'd do well to find some answers. At no stage did they even threaten to chase this target down. Sure, not having your T20 super stars is one thing, but being embarrassed in this manner has to raise the standard of cricket West Indies have plummeted to.

This is Pakistan's seventh successive T20I series win. Pakistan have consolidated their No. 1 ranking in T20 cricket. Sarfraz hasn't lost a series yet as captain.

Time for the presentation

Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain: "The guys understand their roles well," he says. "I'm trying to learn as much as possible as captain, especially getting angry on the field (laughs). It feels good when youngsters come into the side. I want to give them confidence. Whoever has come in recently have delivered. We have focused a lot on fitness in recent times. We've made this very clear: you will be available to play if fit."

Babar Azam is the Player of the match for his 97 not out. "I didn't get the hundred because of my own fault," he laughs. "The team's plan for me was to bat out the 20 overs. Fakhar Zaman doesn't allow pressure to escalate, that helps play my normal game."

Jason Mohammed, the West Indies captain: "Disappointing performance," he deadpans. "We tried to set aggressive fields to try and get early wickets. It's difficult at times. Hopefully we can go home with a victory."

W
Talat to Smith, OUT

slower and fuller on middle, he looks to clear long-off but can only hit it as far as the mid-off fielder. He had some work to do: ran in and dived full length forward to complete an excellent catch. Talat continues to impress. Pakistan have wrapped the series 2-0

Hasan Ali to Williams, OUT

middle stump takes a walk. This is a super delivery, typical Hasan Ali. The late reverse swing back in leaves Williams little time to dig this one out.

W
Amir to Emrit, 1 run, OUT

steered towards square third man, superb timing but what's the point? They've committed hara kiri. Emrit turned around for the second and got to the other end, except that Kesrick didn't move an inch. So Sarfraz collected the ball and then ran all the way down to the bowler's end and whipped the bails off.
