WI vs PAK 2nd T20I: Babar Azam & Md Hafeez lead Pakistan to 7-run win despite Pooran’s quickfire 50, take 1-0 lead in series – Nicholas Pooran’s 33-ball 62 was not enough as West Indies slumped to a 7-run defeat in the 2nd T20. With the win, Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the 4-match series. Babar Azam set the stage with a 50 but it was Mohammed Hafeez’s 1/5 in 4 overs spell that changed the game for Pakistan.

Earlier, West Indies won the toss and opted to bowl first. Pakistan were off to a good start with Babar Azam scoring 51 off 40 balls and Mohammad Rizwan hitting 46 off 36. But a collapse in the middle-order after the rain break saw them lose 5 wickets for just 23 runs with Jason Holder bagging 4 wickets for 26 runs and Dwayne Bravo scalping 2/24.

WI vs PAK 2nd T20I: Chasing a competitive target, West Indies were dealt a blow with Andre Fletcher departing in the 1st over while Chris Gayle too continuing his poor run of form. Evin Lewis who tried to salvage the innings after Mohammed Hafiz’s miser 1/5 spell, he had to retire hurt with a cramp.

In his place, Kieron Pollard came on but struggled to get any momentum going. However, it was Nicholas Pooran who kept the hopes alive with an excellent knock of 62 off 33 balls. But with Kieron Pollard taking up first two balls without a boundary in the last over, Pooran could not do much as Shaheen Afridi’s fuller length balls kept boundaries in check. In the end, West Indies fell 7 runs short.
