ABU DHABI: Pakistan defeat West Indies by eight wickets in 3rd T20 international to clean sweep the three-match series over the world champions at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Earlier Left-arm spinner Imad Wasim continued his wicket-taking form to help Pakistan restrict the West Indies to 103-5 in the third and final Twenty20 international in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

Wasim finished with 3-21 as West Indies — sent in to bat — were left struggling at 31-4 before they added 72 more runs on a slow bounce pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Marlon Samuels, who top-scored with a 59-ball 42 not out, added 37 for the unbroken sixth-wicket stand with Kieron Pollard, who made an unbeaten 16.

Pakistan had already sealed the series after winning the first two matches by nine wickets and 16 runs respectively, both in Dubai.
