Azam had earlier broken Saeed Anwar s record of two tons against the West Indies, in 2016, when the Caribbean side had toured United Arab Emirates (UAE). Azam is now just a century behind Brian Lara in terms of hitting most tons in Pakistan-West Indies bilateral cricket. Lara took 48 games to score 5 tons against Pakistan, whereas Azam has taken a mere 5 matches to achieve the feat. He has 5 ODI tons so far, out of which 4 have come against West Indies. Azam is now behind South Africa’s Quinton de Kock in terms of being the quickest to 5 ODI tons. Azam has taken 23 innings, whereas de Kock had taken 19 innings. Azam is followed by India’s Shikhar Dhawan, who took 28 innings to achieve the feat.

Earlier, West Indies skipper Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bowl first. West Indies fielded an unchanged eleven from the first ODI. As for Pakistan, skipper Sarfraz Ahmed made just a change, with Junaid Khan coming in for Wahab Riaz. Pakistan were off to a shaky start, as with just 16 runs on the board, they lost Ahmed Shehzad, who fell for mere 5 to Gabriel in the fifth over. Azam came out to support opener Kamran Akmal. However, just after adding a mere 28 runs, Akmal followed his fellow opener Shehzad back to the pavilion. He fell for 21 to Alzarri Joseph in the ninth over.

Out came veteran Shoaib Malik, but was dismissed just 15 runs later, as he fell for mere nine to Devendra Bishoo in the 29th over. However, Azam had brought up his half-century by then off 61 balls, including four boundaries. The next man out to bat was the skipper Sarfraz, and along with Azam, he put up another fair 55-run stand for the fifth wicket, as Azam contributed 22, while Sarfraz contributed 26 in the stand. However, it was at the score of 183, he fell in the 39th over for 26 to Gabriel.

It was then the next and final pair of Azam along with Imad Wasim, who put up an unbeaten 99-run stand for the sixth wicket to steer Pakistan to a commanding total of 282 for the loss of six wickets. Azam also brought up his fifth ODI ton in the process off 123 deliveries, including six boundaries, along with a strike rate of 95.
