    At one point it felt like West Indies were cruising but then Shadab Khan struck and got 4 wickets of which 2 came back-to-back. There were still chances when Brathwaite and Holder were together.

  • 1:23 AM IST

    Hasan Ali to bowl the final over

    Not impossible for West Indies but not easy job!

  • 1:22 AM IST

    West Indies need 14 off last over.

  • 1:17 AM IST

    Wahab Riaz to bowl the 19th over
    1st ball – A single
    2nd ball – He has cleaned up Carlos Brathwaite. Is there any drama here as the umpires are checking for a no-ball.

    Yes he is out. It was nice and full and Brathwaite cleared his leg to go for a big one, but the extra pace undid him and the stumps are disturbed

  • 1:15 AM IST

    West Indies needed 30 in last 3 overs. Sohail Tanvir bowled the 19th over of the game conceding 11 runs from the last over of his spell. With Brathwaite and Holder at the crease, West Indies will be counting their chances. If the hosts don’t lose any wicket in the upcoming 12 upcoming 12 deliveries, West Indies might just edge home.
    19 required off 12 deliveries.

  • 1:06 AM IST

    West Indies still have their captain Carlos Brathwaite and Jason Holder battling it out in the middle with 6 wickets down. So there is that element of big hitting that Pakistan would be well aware of.

    OUT! Shadab Khan you beauty! He has got the important wicket of Marlon Samuels. Sarfraz Ahmed takes a nice catch as the ball kisses the outside edge and nestles into his gloves.

  • 12:44 AM IST

    OUT! Keiron Pollard has been stumped, off Shadab’s bowling. Pollard was nowhere near the ball. He comes down the track, but is deceived by the legspin. Pollard misses out on everything and is stumped easily. And just when I was about to update you folks, Shadab has got Rovman Powell. Straight delivery from Shadab. Arm bowl rather and Powell does not know anything about the delivery.
    The ball skid off the off stump!

  • 12:41 AM IST

    This is how Shadab Khan got the better of Chadwick Walton.

  • 12:40 AM IST

    Marlon Samuels is in great nick. Irrespective of the wickets at the other end, his bat has done some brutal talking today. He has moved onto 42 off just 26 deliveries with help of 2 colossal sixes and 5 cracking boundaries

  • 12:35 AM IST

    OUT! Lendl Simmons has been trapped by Hasan Ali. The ball swung in and the bat was hiding behind the pad. The ball seemed to have hit one of the cracks hence the deadly swing which just cleaned up Simmons.

  • 12:33 AM IST

  • 12:29 AM IST

    OUT! Shadab Khan has clean bowled Chadwick Walton. Wrong’un doing the trick for the 18-year old. It was pitched on middle stump. It went onto castle the leg stump. Chadwick had no clue where the ball was.

  • 12:28 AM IST

    Back-to-back sixes for Marlon Samuels against Imad Wasim.

    He is definitely turning the heat on!

  • 12:27 AM IST

  • 12:25 AM IST

    Shadab Khan has been introduced into the attack but West Indies batsmen have opted to attack him rather than waiting back. Some exchange of words too from Marlon Samuels who cut through for a boundary through the backward point. Samuels and Chadwick are in great touch here and are going for some big shots against Pakistan spinners.

  • 12:11 AM IST

    Shehzad has been taken off. Walton hit him just below the neck and he remained unmoved after the collision for some time. He had his neck braced by the support staff.

  • 12:04 AM IST

    What is exactly happening here! Again West Indies batsmen take a sneaky single. Samuels nudged the ball and Chadwick Walton ran towards the batsman’s end. But Ahmed Shehzad collected the ball and tried to hit the wickets but Walton rammed into Shehzad. Shehzad is in terrible pain.

  • 11:58 PM IST

    This is what actually happened

  • 11:53 PM IST

    West Indies have lost Evin Lewis. He tries to take a quick single but looses his bat just when he was about to cross the crease. The bat touches the ground but he has no contact over it and when the ball hits the stumps he is still airborne.

    **West Indies innings**

  • 11:41 PM IST

    That is it. West Indies bundle Pakistan out for 132. Narine and Brathwaite take 3 wickets each. Shoaib scores 28 – highest for Pakistan. Like in the previous match, they failed to put up a collective bowling effort. However, had Riaz not scored not 24 off 10, Pakistan would have stared down the barrel.

  • 11:21 PM IST

    Pakistan lose 4 wickets in 8 runs. West Indies bowlers are in a hurry to wrap up Pakistan. Narine and Brathwaite have taken 3 wickets each so far. In addition, Brathwaite takes a blinder running behind.

  • 11:08 PM IST

    Damn. Malik goes. Pakistan lose half their side. Just when they needed momentum, they lose their main man. In comes Imad Wasim. The onus of firing on all cylinders is on him.

  • 11:06 PM IST

  • 10:58 PM IST

    Pakistan will still count their chances as they have Shoaib Malik and Sarfraz Ahmed at the crease. Malik was in fine form in the last game and he seems to have resumed from where he left in the series opener. Sarfraz is a known hitter of the ball and now as the innings is coming to its end, he will be cutting loose soon!

WI-vs-PAK

Good Evening! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket score and updates of the second T20I of the four-match series between Pakistan and West Indies at Port of Spain. I am Rohan Sawant, and I will be bringing all the live happenings from the social media universe as well as highlight the significant events of this crackerjack of a contest. However, given that I am a die-hard Younis Khan fan, I would have loved to see the 39-year-old warhorse play the shortest format. Those cover-drives, I tell you. I’d pay any amount to witness his flicks over the leg-side field. Anyway, given he does not play this format, my entertainment now relies on Babar Azam’s stunning batsmanship. Live cricket score: Pakistan vs West Indies, 2nd T20I

Pakistan thrashed West Indies in the first match. Their bowlers obliterated West Indies’ batting line-up and restricted them to 111 for 8. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan produced best figures by a debutant: 4-0-7-3. He got the better of opener Chadwick Walton, Lendl Simmons, and Sunil Narine. Meanwhile, left-arm orthodox Imad Wasim conceded only 12 runs off 3 overs, taking a wicket. However, pacer Wahab Riaz leaked as many as 35 runs off his four-over quota. As a result, it is evident that West Indies had trouble facing spinners. Given the fact, Pakistan will leave no stone unturned exploit their weakness and take an unassailable lead.

West Indies, however, have no option but to up the ante and put Pakistan on the back foot to stay on course in this series. Their batsman especially will have to play out of their skin if they are to keep Pakistan at bay. All the same, given they have top-drawer T20 players in the side, it will not come as a surprise if they stage a comeback.

Squads:

Pakistan: Ahmed Shehzad, Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Fakhar Zaman, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Sohail Tanvir, Wahab Riaz, Rumman Raees, Usman Khan.

West Indies: Samuel Badree, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Jonathan Carter, Andre Fletcher, Jason Holder, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Sunil Narine, Veerasammy Permaul, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Jerome Taylor, Chadwick Walton (wk), Kesrick Williams
