PROVIDENCE – Pakistan on Tuesday won the four-match series against West Indies after the final T20I was called off due to rain at Providence.

The host team was at 30 in three overs where the downpour interrupted the game. Earlier in the day, Pakistan won the toss and decided to field first. 

It is for the first time in cricket history that three plays of the four-match series remained indecisive. Earlier in 2015, two matches between Scotland and Ireland had been called off due to rain. 

The two sides locked horns after the first and third T20I was called off due to rain while Pakistan bagged a seven-run win in the second T20I to take lead in the four-match series. 

All these matches are crucial for team Green ahead of T20 World Cup in October this year.

For today’s fixture, Haris Rauf remains in the XI after he replaced Shaheen Shah Afridi for the washed-out third match. Azam Khan will not be a part of the squad in wake of the head injury during the practice session.

On the other side, Lendl Simmons was injured in the first match and Evin Lewis retired hurt in the second - Gayle could open alongside Andre Fletcher.

With rain predicted for the week as a whole, there is a chance that the contest may be a shortened one.
