Sharjah: Pakistan’s captain Azhar Ali has won the toss and has decided to bat first in the second ODI match of the series.

Pakistan are one up in the three match series and a win today will mean that they will clinch the series by taking an unassailable lead.

Umar Akmal, who has made a comeback in the Pakistan squad, is yet to get a match in the ODI series as Pakistan have fielded an unchanged side.

West Indies have brought in fast bowler Alzarri Joseph for unfit Shannon Gabriel. The 19-year-old Joseph is making his one-day debut.


West Indies XI: K Brathwaite, J Charles, DM Bravo, M Samuels, D Ramdin, K Pollard, J Holder, C Brathwaite, S Narine, S Benn, A Joseph

Pakistan XI: Azhar Ali, S Khan, B Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, S Malik, S Ahmed, M Nawaz, I Wasim, M Amir, Wahab Riaz, H Ali.
