Pakistan and West Indies take on each other in the third One-Day International match of the series at Gros Islet on Friday.

Both teams are currently tied with one win credited to their name.

West Indies skipper Dwayne Bravo won the toss and elected to field first. At the toss, he said, “It is a new atmosphere and we will look to make use of the early moisture. Normally the wicket here is even. I don’t think it is going to be a one sided game. Hopefully we will bowl well and try and steal some momentum from them.”

While West Indies retained their side for the match, Pakistan made two changes in the team. Haris Sohail and Junaid Khan have come in place of Asad Shafiq and Asad Ali

Shahid Afridi’s sensational all-round performance in the first ODI gave Pakistan a comfortable victory. He registered figures of seven for 12 with the ball, which is the second best bowling effort in ODIs.

Teams:

West Indies: Johnson Charles (wk), Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo (c), Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Kemar Roach, Sunil Narine, Jason Holder

Pakistan: Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Misbah-ul-Haq (c), Haris Sohail, Umar Akmal (wk), Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan
