West Indies square off with Pakistan in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series. The all-important contest will be played at Providence, Guyana. However, the series is levelled 1-1 and both teams will leave no stone unturned to up the ante and clinch the series. In addition, if Pakistan win, they will maintain their 26-year unbeaten series record against the hosts. The live cricket streaming of the match will be available in India on Sony LIV, while the live telecast will be available on Ten 1 HD and Ten 3 in India and Pakistan.

After winning the second ODI, Pakistan made sure they remain in the top eight, and have qualified for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Given they won the T20I series 2-1 and came back strongly in the second ODI, it won’t come as a surprise if they edge past West Indies today. However, the crowd is likely to come in good numbers to support their home team, who will not feature in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
In other news, pacer Shanon Gabriel hurt his hamstring in the second ODI. Therefore, West Indies have added spinner Veerasammy Permaul as his cover in the squad. Gabriel, for that matter, will undergo a fitness test before the match. But they do have pacer Miguel Cummins, a like-for-like replacement.
On the other hand, Pakistan are likely to play with the same XI that helped them stay on course.
