Pakistan-West Indies-wickets-T20

Pakistan swept past world champions West Indies in the third and final Twenty20 worldwide, securing an eight wicket win in Abu Dhabi to achieve their first-ever clean sweep in the shortest format.

Pakistan's talented all-rounder Imad Wasim has been up in the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I to be placed among top five bowlers after an exemplary performance in the series against the West Indies in the UAE.

In the end, Samuels finished unbeaten on 42 off 59 balls, but he was by no means alone in struggling to up the tempo. Debutant medium pacer Kesrick Williams (2/15) was the sole bright light for the beleaguered world champions as Pakistan cruised home by eight wickets, steered by a breezy knock by Shoaib Malik (43 from 34).

West Indies were humbled in the two opening games in Dubai, losing the first game by nine wickets and the second by 16 runs.

And West Indian skipper Carlos Brathwaite once again blamed poor batting. The left-arm pacer was not among the wickets this time but proved very economical, further increasing the pressure on West Indies.

Samuels and Nicholas Pooran (16) added 35 for the fifth wicket but Pakistan continued to press them hard with accurate bowling. With Imad's brilliance Green Shirts were able to whitewash the T20 champions, West Indies in 3-match series.

"Hopefully, we will win the ODI series as well", Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said after the game.

"We didn't bat well in the first six (overs) in all the three games", Brathwaite said.

Chasing fewer than six runs an over, Pakistan were never under pressure, especially after Jerome Taylor sprayed the new ball around in his first two overs, conceding four leg-side fours, a leg-side wide, and a set of leg-byes down to the fine leg boundary. "We want to win it 3-0 and want to be ruthless with our attitude". "It's a matter of skill and temperament".

Openers Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif gave Pakistan a positive start and added 36 runs in 5 overs.

If you look on the field, we were better than them.

Pakistan had brought Mohammad Amir and Rumman Raees for the final match, resting Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali. The resurgence is refreshing as Pakistan now turns focus on the three-match ODI series where Azhar has the task of sustaining the momentum and turn his own bleak fortunes around at the same time.

The ODI series will be played from September 30 while the Test series will begin from October 13.
