West Indies clawed their way back in the 4 match series after winning the 3rd T20I against Pakistan by 7 wickets to reduce Pakistan’s lead to 2-1 in the series. Batting first Pakistan never got going and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Eventually, their score of 137 was easily chased down by the Caribbeans as they won the match by 5 wickets and with 5 overs to spare.

Pakistan got off to a disastrous start and lost their opening two wickets in the very first over itself. Kamran Akmal and Babar Azam started the repair work after the early loss. Akmal looked in good touch and began with a couple of boundaries. Babar Azam too started gaining in confidence and played some delightful shots. The first six of the match came from his bat in the 6th over.

After sharing an 88 runs partnership for the 3rd wicket, Kamran Akmal was eventually dismissed by Marlon Samuels in the 13th over. The dismissal of Akmal opened the floodgates for West Indies and they cashed in big time. Wickets at regular intervals halted their progress as they managed to score only 137 in their allotted 20 overs. Samuel Badree bagged 2/22 in his 4 overs.

Chasing a modest target, West Indies were jolted early as Chadwick Walton gave away his wicket in the 2nd over to SohailTanvir. It was an Evin Lewis show from there on as the southpaw smashed the listless Pakistan bowlers all around Queens Park Oval at Port of Spain. It was a scintillating innings by the left-hander which contained 9 maximums and 5 fours.

There was hardly any support from the other end as the next highest score was just 18. Lewis kept on smashing them all around the park and remained unbeaten on 91 of 51 deliveries. Courtesy their win, West Indies managed to keep the series alive with one much still to go.

Twitteratti was pretty active throughout the game and there were some tweets which described the proceedings in the best possible way.
