Pakistan Win T-20 Series Against West Indies

Pakistan maintained their series winning streak over the West Indies as rain had the final say yet again with the scheduled final encounter of the four-match T20 international series abandoned as a no-result at the National Stadium in Guyana.

Just one of the scheduled matches reached a conclusion on the field of play with the tourists defeating the home side by seven runs in the second match on Saturday at the same venue.

Although play started on time in the final match, just three overs were bowled with the pair of Andre Fletcher and Chris Gayle getting the West Indies off to a flying start at 30 without loss.

However the combination of steady rainfall and an outfield that had already soaked up considerable moisture in the preceding two days meant no chances of the game.

The two-match test series being played at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica, will start on August 12.
