Pakistan completed a clean sweep in the three-match Twenty20 series against a virus-hit West Indies.

Pakistan won by 7 wickets after chasing down a target of 208.

WHO SAID WHAT?
Babar Azam | Pakistan captain: Definitely the plan was to play according to the situation. We thought of managing the run-rate and once we had the momentum, we took off. The effort put in by the seamers in the series has been impressive. It was a chance to test our bench strength today and I’m happy. We are preparing for the T20 World Cup in Australia and the team is giving 100 per cent. The way Rizwan has played throughout the year and the way he has improved his batting – all the youngsters should look at him and take him as a role model.

Nicholas Pooran | West Indies captain: Felt like the last two overs, we lost the momentum. Pakistan bowled well. We were 15 runs short on this wicket. Most of the guys haven’t slept the whole night and I’m very proud of the unit. I want to commend all the guys for making that extra effort to come out to play today, we spent the whole day wondering whether we should play this game or not. Lot of positives and a lot of guys took their opportunities. A special bunch of guys and we have competed throughout and well done to the guys.

Mohammad Rizwan: 207 is a big target in T20s, the coach told us to target the circle [probably hinting at the 30-yard circle in the powerplay] as the West Indies had done and that was the first target which we achieved and then our task became easier. I have focussed better and I don’t know how many runs I have got this year. I can’t give a name to that shot [referring to the leg-side swat], I have worked on that with the coaches [Shahid Aslam] and thanks to them for the improvement in my all-round game.
