Port of Spain - Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and chose to bat first against the West Indies in the third of four T20 Internationals at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad on Saturday.

With an unbeatable 2-0 lead following a thrilling three-run win in the second match on Thursday at the same venue, the visitors have named an unchanged team.

The focus again is on talented leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who marked his first appearances at senior international level in this format with successive Man of the Match performances.

Needing victory to keep interest in the series alive ahead of the final match on Sunday, West Indies have made one change.

Batsman and occasional off-spinner Jason Mohammed makes his T20 International debut at the expense of all-rounder Rovman Powell.

Teams

West Indies - Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Evin Lewis, Chadwick Walton, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Jason Mohammed, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree, Kesrick Williams.

Pakistan - Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Kamran Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Tanvir, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali.

Umpires: Gregory Brathwaite (BAR), Leslie Reifer (BAR)

Match Referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
