Babar Azam’s unbeaten 97-run innings off 58 deliveries pushed Pakistan’s total to 205/3, two more than the previous game. Hussain Talat starred once again with the bat with a 41-ball 63 and also picked up a couple of wickets. Windies never looked like chasing the big score as they were bundled out for 123.
