Pakistan opt to bowl as Rumman debuts

ABU DHABI: Pakistan opt to bowl first in  the third T20 against West Indies at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to bowl first in the third and final T20 against the visiting side.

Pakistan went into the match with an all-left-arm bowling attack, with left-arm seamers Mohammed Amir and Rumman Raees, on T20I debut, coming in for Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali.

West Indies also made two changes. The debutant medium-pacer Kesrick Williams came into the side, with a sore groin ruling out the legspinner Samuel Badree, and Chadwick Walton, who last played for West Indies in January 2014, replacing Evin Lewis in the top order.

Pakistan: 1 Sharjeel Khan, 2 Khalid Latif, 3 Babar Azam, 4 Shoaib Malik, 5 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 6 Umar Akmal, 7 Mohammad Nawaz, 8 Imad Wasim, 9 Mohammed Amir, 10 Sohail Tanvir, 11 Rumman Raees.

West Indies: 1 Johnson Charles, 2 Andre Fletcher (wk), 3 Marlon Samuels, 4 Chadwick Walton, 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Kieron Pollard, 7 Carlos Brathwaite (capt), 8 Nicholas Pooran, 9 Sunil Narine, 10 Jerome Taylor, 11 Kesrick Williams.
