West Indies v Pakistan

Wisden's review of the second T20 International, West Indies v Pakistan

11-Feb-2018
Second Twenty20 international At Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, March 30, 2017. Pakistan won by three runs. Pakistan 132 (20 overs) (S. P. Narine 3-22, C. R. Brathwaite 3-37); ‡West Indies 129-8 (20 overs) (M. N. Samuels 44; Shadab Khan 4-14). MoM: Shadab Khan. T20I debut: Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan).
Pakistan defended a mediocre 132 thanks to another stirring performance from Shadab. After Marlon Samuels struck Imad Wasim for consecutive sixes, West Indies needed 73 with 12 overs and nine wickets left. But Shadab punctured the chase, and his last delivery - a googly that took Samuels's edge - gave him a fourth wicket, reducing West Indies to 81-6. Jason Holder (26*) didn't give up, though, and Sunil Narine hit boundaries off the first two balls of the last over, reducing the requirement to six. Hasan Ali bowled a wide, but the rest were on the mark and, after Narine ran himself out, Pakistan escaped. Earlier in the chase, there was a spate of collisions while batsmen scampered for singles. In the second over, Evin Lewis bumped into Shadab and was run out. In the fourth, Chadwick Walton was involved in two tangles: a brush with Sohail Tanvir, followed by a hard crash with Ahmed Shehzad. An ambulance arrived, and paramedics strapped Shehzad into a neck brace, but a few overs later he was back on the field, merrily swearing at Samuels. After being inserted, Pakistan had been struggling at 95-8, but a 36-run partnership between Shadab and Wahab Riaz set up a total they could just about protect.
