Pak­istan seek clean sweep

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Pak­istan will at­tempt to se­cure a 3-0 se­ries vic­tory when they play the West Indies tonight in Abu Dhabi (8pm UAE time). The hosts have al­ready won the Twenty20 se­ries thanks to two com­fort­able wins in Dubai and will now aim to make it a clean sweep. With the Windies miss­ing a num­ber of play­ers who helped them win the World T20 – in­clud­ing Chris Gayle, An­dre Rus­sell and Dar­ren Sammy – Pak­istan have rarely been trou­bled. They won by nine wick­ets in the first game then se­cured a 16-run win in the sec­ond, with So­hail Tan­vir and Hasan Ali claim­ing three wick­ets apiece. How­ever, it has been lef­t­arm spin­ner Imad Wasim (right) who has im­pressed the most, claim­ing six wick­ets in the two matches at an av­er­age of 5.33. The T20 se­ries will be fol­lowed by three one-day in­ter­na­tion­als, the first of which will be played in Shar­jah on Fri­day.
