Cricket fans in search of an online live stream to watch the third and final Pakistan vs. West Indies Test match can find full information right here on how to stream what could be a historic match for free in Pakistan, India, or the United States.
Not only will the match mark the 49th Test match for 42-year-old iconic Captain Misbah-ul-Haq — more than any other Pakistan skipper — but with a win, Pakistan will complete an unprecedented nine-match, three-format whitewash of visiting West Indies. After winning a trilogy of T20 matches to start the tour, the finishing off West Indies with a three-game sweep in their One Day International match series would be historic.
If the men in green can pull off the feat, they will be the first cricket team ever to completely shut out the opposition in a nine-match tour.
After a day-night second Test, the third Test returns to the traditional schedule, with first ball set for 10 a.m. on Sunday, October 30, at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, the country that serves as host for Pakistan’s home matches due to security concerns in the team’s native country. Fans in Pakistan can catch the live stream starting at 11 a.m., while viewers in India should log in at 11:30 a.m.
Cricket fans in the United States can also watch a live stream, but should be ready to pull an all-nighter. The match starts at 2 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday and 11 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday in the U.S.

Expected Teams For the 3rd and Final Test
West Indies have not won a Test match since a five-wicket win over England in Bridgetown, Barbados, in May of 2015 — losing 10 of 12 since then while forcing two draws. The Windies have not won a single away Test since October of 2011 when they beat Bangladesh in Dhaka.
With that in mind, the team’s youthful Test captain, Jason Holder, will be looking to field his strongest side in hopes of leaving the UAE with heads held high. Shane Dowrich is expected to take over keeping wickets, while 19-year-old fats bowler Alzarri Joseph — a standout in West Undies Under-19 World Cup championship earlier this year, may take a place in the side as well.
Here are the projected teams for the third and final Pakistan vs. West Indies Test match.
West Indies: 1 Kraigg Brathwaite, 2 Leon Johnson, 3 Darren Bravo, 4 Marlon Samuels, 5 Jermaine Blackwood, 6 Roston Chase, 7 Shane Dowrich (wicketkeeper), 8 Jason Holder (captain), 9 Devendra Bishoo, 10 Alzarri Joseph, 11 Shannon Gabriel.
Pakistan: 1 Sami Aslam, 2 Azhar Ali, 3 Younis Khan, 4 Misbah ul Haq (captain), 5 Asad Shafiq, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (wicketkeeper), 7 Mohammad Nawaz, 8 Wahab Riaz, 9 Yasir Shah, 10 Imran Khan, 11 Sohail Khan.
