Pakistan Vs West Indies 5th One Day International 05 May Live

Dwayne BravoThe fifth and the final ODI of the five-match series between West Indies and Pakistan will be played at the Providence in Guyana. The match will be played on May 5 and will be a day game.

Pakistan have already won the ODI series but they will go into the game with a loss to their name in the previous game. They lead the series 3-1 and that will mean that they will need to look to make four games won in the series before they go into the Test series. West Indies lost three in a row before a rain-hit game was won by them.

Pakistan, to be fair to them, were a bit unlucky to have lost the previous game. They were looking good in the rain-affected game and should have gone on to clinch the game had the game lasted the full distance. Unfortunately, when it started raining, the West Indian side was ahead by one run and went on to win the game because the rain did not stop. Of course, there was a bit of a consolation for the Pakistani side, as Mohammad Hafeez went on to win a man of the match award in the game.

Hafeez was simply amazing with both, the bat and the ball in the game and there was no taking that award from him. He went on to score his second century of the format and the second one of the year as well before returning to bowl six overs for 26 and picking up a wicket. Had it been for some support from the pace bowlers, things could have been different for the Pakistani side. It was only some excellent batting from the top West Indian order and a late six by Dwayne Bravo that sealed the game for the home team.

Speaking of the West Indian batting, Lendl Simmons was the star of the show, as he has been throughout the series. He opened the innings with Kirk Edwards in place of Devon Smith and then was involved in a good, half-century stand with R Sarwan. If he can continue to get the runs in the manner that he has in the tournament so far, things will look much easier for the home team.

The bowling continues to be supported well by Ravi Rampaul but the biggest improvement of the year is Devendra Bishoo.
