KARACHI: Opting to bat, Pakistan have posted 172/8 on the board on the back of a little cameo from Shadab Khan (28* off 12) in the 2nd T20I at National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday.
Shadab Khan hit two sixes in the last over to help Pakistan post 172 for 8. Odean Smith picked up 2 for 24 in his 3 overs.
West Indies had made a strong comeback in the match by picking the wickets of Haider Ali (31) and Mohammad Nawaz in quick succession. Mohammed Rizwan (38) and Haider once again threatened to take the game away but both of them could not convert their starts.
An error of judgement by both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan ended the former s innings early after Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat first.
Earlier, Pakistan won the toss and choose to bat first against West Indies.
