Pakistan has a perfect ten after winning the ODI series against the West Indies

In Multan, the hosts dismissed the Caribbean squad for 155 runs to win by 120 runs and grab a commanding three-match series lead.

Pakistan defeated West Indies by 120 runs in the second One-Day International on Friday, taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz took four wickets.

Pakistan batted first and scored a robust 275-8, which proved too much for the visitors. In Multan, Nawaz impressed with his spin bowling, dismissing the Caribbean team for 155 in 33 overs. He finished with career-best ODI numbers of 4-19. On his comeback, pitcher Mohammad Wasim contributed 3-34.

Pakistan have now won 10 straight ODI series against the West Indies, and will try to seal a clean sweep of the series when the third ODI takes place on Sunday.

“We were probably short by 10-15 runs since we lost two wickets in a succession,” Azam remarked.

Nicholas Pooran, the captain of the West Indies, hailed Nawaz as well.

In the first 45 overs, I believed we bowled effectively, but we gave up 20 too many. Nawaz deserves credit for his outstanding bowling performance.”

Player-of-the-match Nawaz said he concentrated on the fundamentals because the ground provided ample assistance for slow bowlers.

“I was concentrating on the fundamentals, and the pitch helped me,” Nawaz explained. “We had a concept in the first innings, especially after I was out, and I want to do well as an all-rounder and progress day by day.”

Captain Azam, who won the toss and elected to bat on another scorching hot day in Multan, and Imam-ul-Haq put on a 120-run second-wicket stand after Fakhar Zaman went for 17 for the second time.

In one-day internationals, Azam (77) and Imam (80) shared their fourth consecutive century partnership (72).
