A good over so far from Roach, five dots. This is a good surface to bat on and we should expect a high-scoring game. After 9 overs Pakistan 26 for no loss as Roach completes a maiden.
Over 8 Pak 26/0 (Shehzad 15, Jamshed 9)
Holder starts his 4th over with a wide. The outfields are slow, so the ball just stops after it is hit in the air by Shehzad. Dropped, Gayle drops one at first slip. Just four from the over and the drop from Gayle.
Over 7 Pak 22/0 (Shehzad 12, Jamshed 9)
No confidence in that appeal from Roach for lbw, it was drifting down leg. A quick single, slight hesitation, but they make it in the end even though it was a direct hit.
Over 6 Pak 20/0 (Shehzad 11, Jamshed 8)
A single from the second ball, and then the fifth ball goes for four. Shehzad who is looking in good touch today, plays it past point for four, it was back of length from Holder and Shehzed creates width and uses it to get the four.
Over 5 Pak 12/0 (Shehzad 7, Jamshed 4)
Another good over from Roach. Three runs from it. It is turning out to be good batting surface and rain has stayed away.
Over 4 Pak 12/0 (Shehzad 7, Jamshed 4)
Shehzad drives and drives well through the covers for four. Shehzad then plays it off his hips to square leg for a couple of runs. Shehzad hits it into the off side, but is unable to get it through the covers. After 4 overs Pakistan are 12 for no loss.
Over 3 Pak 6/0 (Shehzad 1, Jamshed 4)
Jamshed drives and it goes past the fielder at mid off for four. A good over from Roach, just the boundary from the over and Pakistan are 6 for no loss.
Over 2 Pak 2/0 (Shehzad 1, Jamshed 0)
Holder begins the second over of the innings. Just one wide and no runs of the bat from Pakistan this over.
Over 1 Roach 1/0 (Shehzad 1, Jamshed 0)
Roach starts off the 3rd ODI. Roach begins with a good ball. Just a single from the over, there was another one but a misunderstanding between the batsmen keeps it to one.
West Indies have won the toss and will bowl first. Haris Sohail and Junaid Khan replace Asad Ali and Asad Shafiq.
