The third T20 between Pakistan and West Indies will be played today

Pakistan walloped the West Indies by seven wickets in the final T20 worldwide in Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday to seal a 3-1 victory in the four-match series.

The leg-spinner has picked up seven wickets in his first two T20 internationals and led Pakistan to victory in both matches against West Indies.

The West Indies Coach Stuart Law in an interview said his team needs to revise its strategy and be "more ruthless" against Pakistan's 18-year-old debutante Shadab Khan, whom he says the West Indies "gifted" a few wicket, ESPNcricinfo reported.

Pakistan, electing to bat first, squandered a good partnership between Kamran Akmal and Babar Azam to score an underwhelming 137-8.

With his side tottering at 83 for seven, captain Carlos Brathwaite effected a bit of a fix job with an unbeaten 37, although a final total again under 130 left Pakistan as favourites to complete victory and take the series 3-1.

Chasing a sub-par total of 125 runs to win, Pakistan made a solid start with openers Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad putting on 40 for first wicket inside seven overs.

He rolled through his first six matches - losing just eight holes and trailing for just three - before running into Johnson. NOTEWORTHY: For the second straight year, all four quarterfinal matches ended before the 18th hole.

The last battle in the shortest format of the game between the 4th-ranked West Indies and the 6th-ranked Pakistan is set to begin after a short while at the same venue.

Man of the Match in the first two games Shadab struggled to recapture the same control under the pressure imposed by Lewis, and to a lesser extent the other top-order batsmen. In the same opening over, Imad Wasim was stumped for a duck.

Pakistan have made only one change bringing in Rumman Raees in place of Sohail Tanvir while West Indies are unchanged.

Ahmed Shehzad (53 off 45 balls) hit fifty, and though he was one of two late wickets to fall, the tourists cruised to a series-clinching victory with 10 balls to spare.

He showed it was no fluke in the second T20, taking 4-14 to win a second-straight player-of-the-match award.

Samuels' first delivery was an inviting waist-high full toss which Akmal attempted to heave out of the ground but could only find Lendl Simmons on the midwicket boundary. Leg-spinner Badree was the most successful bowler with two wickets for 22 runs.
