Pakistan will take on West Indies in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) of the series at Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. With the series already being won by Pakistan, the match will be only of academic interest. However, both the teams still have plenty to play for. While Pakistan will look to brownwash the West Indies and send a strong message ahead of the three-match Test series that begins immediately after the conclusion of this series, West Indies will look to win the final game and restore some pride. Their confidence, which has been battered and bruised after back-to-back losses, needs a win under-the-belt going into a much tougher Test series. The live streaming of the match will be available on Ten Sports HD 3, Ten Sports 3. The online streaming will be available on tensports.com. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Pakistan vs West Indies, third ODI at Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan have started the tour exceptionally well. The confidence that they carried from the win in the last two matches on English tour has reflected in their game against West Indies. They first comprehensively beat their opposition to pocket the three-match T20I series. And once the T20Is were out of their way, they approached the ODI series with similar precision and put in a clinical performance to win the series by winning the first two games. Young batsman Babar Azam has been a revelation with his consecutive hundreds in first two ODIs. Shoaib Malik and Sarfraz Ahmed too have been brilliant with the bat, while on the bowling front, the Pakistani unit has put up a collective effort each time the team has taken the field. West Indies, on the other hand, have looked clueless on the field. They have little time to regroup before the Test series and they will look to win the final ODI and salvge some pride.
