Georgetown - Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and chose to bowl first against West Indies on Tuesday in the second one-day international of the five-match series.

Pakistan kept faith in the same playing 11 which whipped West Indies by 126 runs on Sunday. Enigmatic allrounder Shahid Afridi made a strong comeback to international cricket with a blistering 76 off 55 balls and then took 7-12 off his fastish legspin bowling to dismiss the opposition for 98.

West Indies also retained the same team in hope its batsmen will perform much better on the same pitch where it was strangled by Afridi two days ago.

Former ODI captain and allrounder Darren Sammy, who remained unbeaten on 21 in the last match, will be playing in his 100th one-dayer.


West Indies: Dwayne Bravo (captain), Johnson Charles, Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Kemar Roach, Sunil Narine, Jason Holder.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Asad Ali, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Irfan.
