WI vs PAK 4th T20I: Babar Azam’s Pakistan win series 1-0 after rain washes out 4th T20: Babar Azam’s Pakistan won the 4-match T20 series against West Indies after rain washed out the 4th and final T20I as well. West Indies Kieron Pollard will be disappointed the way the series ended. Fletcher and Chris Gayle gave West Indies a good start but the covers had to come on within 3 overs.

After the win against Australia 4-1, West Indies were on a high but they fell short in the 2nd T20I against Pakistan by 7 runs while the other 3 matches were washed out, dealing a blow to their chances. It also means that Pakistan now have won three back-to-back series in West Indies.

Babar Azam | Pakistan captain: “As a team we wanted to execute a few plans, try combinations, but we couldn’t do that because of rain. Difficult to stay away from family in these times and play cricket. But credit to the management for doing well. We wanted to improve on the areas we were lacking, try combinations. We have a few more games to do that. Looking forward to the Tests. We will now switch our minds to the Test format,” quoted Cricbuzz.

The two teams will next lock horns against each other in two-match Test series. The opening Test will kick off on August 12 (Thursday).
