That is it from us from the second T20I of the tour, but don't forget to join us for the third and final match in two days' time. Pakistan will be after a clean sweep while West Indies will seek to keep some pride. Until then, it is goodnight and goodbye from Ranjith, Sreshth and me, Himanshu!

Babar Azam, the winning captain: "The finish from Shadab [with the bat] was very good. Bowlers did well too - especially Shaheen - and it was a team effort. The idea is set to set a target and defend, and play as per the conditions and the wicket. There is grip for the spinners in the second innings, which is why we wanted to bat first. Wasim is improving day by day, and he is only doing well. The more he plays, the more experience he gets. The plan will be to try the bench strength in the next match."

Nicholas Pooran, the visiting captain: "Tough one for us. Big improvement from yesterday. Felt like we lost here due to silly mistakes. Irresponsible from myself too. We tried our best to execute plans. It's our responsibility to carry the game. Unfortunately, we made some mistakes. Very proud of Shepherd. It is an experience for us all, and very proud of how all these guys have performed."

Shadab Khan is the Player of the Match: "When my batting comes, it usually is in the death overs so I practice accordingly. I planned by batting as per the field. And with the ball, it wasn't gripping a lot. I had good rhythm, and I just tried to bowl in the good areas."

Time for the presentations

Abdul Rehman: "MoM should be Shadab khan." --- Who else but him?

Mudassar: "Pak win my heart beats are getting normal now."

Abdul Basit: "great effort by WI"

9.53pm So Pakistan take the game after a brief scare, as West Indies fall just short. Shepherd tried to keep West Indies in the game, but an undefeated 35 off 19 balls wasn't enough in the end. The visitors had only two major contributors in Shepherd and King - Pooran's 26 took too many deliveries for their liking - as Afridi's spell of 3 for 26 sealed it for the hosts.

Haris Rauf to Thomas, OUT, bowled him, and another Pakistan win! Fullish ball pitching on middle and leg, and coming on with the angle from around the wicket. Thomas misses his attempted flick, and the ball hits leg stump. Pakistan win by 9 runs, and take the series with a 2-0 lead

O Thomas b Haris Rauf 0 (9m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Some drama here. One extra man was outside the circle, and someone observes just before Haris bowls. Could have been a no-ball had he bowled.

Haris Rauf to Shepherd, 1 run, pretty full ball outside off, and absolutely crunched to deep point. Asif there runs to his left and has to stop that with from the side of his left thigh. That was hit very, very hard

A chat between Shadab, Haris and Babar

Syed : "Who dropped the catch?" --- Shadab...

Haris Rauf to Shepherd, FOUR, beats Shadab running, and four to third man! He swings and slices that full ball outside off, and gets that off the outside edge over short third man. Game on anyone?

Armani: "Remember the name Haris Rauf"

Haris Rauf to Shepherd, no run, yorker on off, and he nails it right there. Too full to allow Shepherd a free swing of the arms, as it comes off the bottom off the bat toward long-on
19.2
6
Haris Rauf to Shepherd, SIX, another one that flies off the bat, and that is six! Good length ball on middle, and he swings over deep backward square leg with the full force off the bat. Bang into the stands and over the fielder's head

Haris Rauf to Shepherd, 2 runs, dropped by Shadab at deep wide-ish third man! The ball went millesss up as Shepherd tried to slice that fullish ball on off, and while the ball dropped on him, it popped out of his hands

Haris from over the wicket.

Zaid Anjum: "4 sixes needed. Are we going to witness "Remember the Name" for Shepherd?"
