Pakistan withstood Sunil Narine’s late charge to beat the West Indies by 16 runs and win their three-match Twenty20 series with a match to spare today. Captain Sarfraz Ahmed hit an unbeaten 46 in leading Pakistan to a strong 160-4. Khalid Latif (40) and Shoaib Malik (37) also made useful contributions.

West Indies’ top order stumbled for the second successive day, and the target looked out of reach until No. 9 batsman Narine made a rapid 30 off 17 balls. But with 30 needed off the last over, West Indies fell short at 144-9 and Narine was out on the last ball.

Left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir rattled West Indies’ top order to finish with 3-13, while Narine top-scored and distorted the figures of another seamer, Hasan Ali, who ended up with 3-49.

World Twenty20 champion West Indies lost the first match by nine wickets. The last match is scheduled for Tuesday.
