A late bowling comeback by Pakistan spinner Hasan Ali gave his team a narrow win over West Indies in the second T20, and now the third match in the four-game series will live stream from Trinidad and Tobago Saturday as the struggling West Indies side faces a must-win game to keep their last hope of escaping the series on level terms alive.
For Pakistan, however, Saturday’s match represents a chance to grab another series trophy and continue their dominance over the team that captured the T20 World Cup in India almost exactly one year ago.
After suffering a one-sided beating in the series opener, West Indies came within four runs of overtaking the Pakistan total of 132 on Thursday, only to falter before the poised performance of Hasan, who held the Windies’ Jason Holder to a single on the final ball when West Indies required four to force a tie breaking super-over.
Teenage spinmaster Shadab Khan claimed a four-wicket haul for the second match in a row, including the wicket of Marlon Samuels, stopping the threatening West Indies batsman at a match-high 44. Wahab Riaz also returned to form, taking a wicket of his own.
