Pakistan completed a series whitewash over West Indies with a comfortable eight-wicket victory in their third and final Twenty20 international in Karachi.
The visitors finally managed to produce something like a competitive target after posting 153-6, with opener Andre Fletcher scoring 52 and Marlon Samuels 31 before wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin plundered 42 from just 18 deliveries.
However, it never looked like being enough as Pakistan - who recorded wins by 143 and 82 runs in the other matches earlier this week - soon set about their chase.
Opener Fakhar Zaman made 40 off just 17 balls, including two sixes and six fours, with Babar Azam, who was 97 not out in Monday's encounter, adding a rapid 51 to push the hosts on to 113-2 in the 13th over.
Series debutants Hussain Talat (31) and Asif Ali (25) then saw Pakistan, officially the world's best T20 nation, home with some 19 balls to spare.
The series marked a return for international cricket to the Pakistan city, which last hosted a game in 2009 just before the attack on Sri Lanka's team bus in Lahore which saw six policemen and two civilians killed.
