Good evening, hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket score and updates of the third One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series between Pakistan and West Indies at the Providence Stadium, Guyana. I am Ayush Gupta, and I will be bringing funny and interesting bits from the social media universe, while my colleague Pramod Ananth will be taking care of IPL 10 encounter between Rising Pune Supergiant and Delhi Daredevils. The series is levelled, and West Indies have a chance to break their 26-year jinx against Pakistan. It was in 1991 that West Indies overwhelmed Pakistan by 2-0 in a three-match ODI series.

Pakistan ended their run of four consecutive ODI defeats by winning the second match by 74 runs. All the same, the contest looked much out of sight for Pakistan until Babar Azam’s century took the game away from the home side. Jason Holder’s challenge, therefore, will be tackle to the No. 3 batsman. Holder will also have to keep a check on their pacers who gave away 84 runs off seven overs. West Indies will also want their top-order to produce a better performance in the deciding match. On the other hand, Pakistan have not seen the best of their pacer Mohammed Aamer.
Pakistan have ensured their spot in the top eight with second ODI win that would take them to ICC World Cup 2019. However, if West Indies manage to win the series, a lot is at stake for Pakistan than just the ODI series.
