Gros Islet - Rain has delayed the start of play in the fourth One-Day International of the five-match series between the West Indies and Pakistan at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia on Sunday.

Earlier, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and put West Indies in to bat.

Following the thrilling tie in the third match on Friday which leaves the series at 1-1, the tourists resisted the temptation to make any changes to their final eleven, despite left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz conceding 14 runs off the final over of the match and 63 runs off his full ten-over spell.

In contrast, the West Indies have omitted hard-hitting middle-order batsman Kieron Pollard following a string of low scores, giving Devon Smith an opportunity to open the batting alongside Johnson Charles.

Chris Gayle, who has also been struggling for runs at the top of the order, is pushed down to number five in the batting line-up.


West Indies: D.J. Bravo (captain), J. Charles, D. Smith, D.M. Bravo, L. Simmons, C. Gayle, M. Samuels, D. Sammy, K. Roach, S. Narine J. Holder.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Irfan.
