Barbados: The series is wrapped up after Pakistan overcame two mini collapses in Barbados to complete a three-wicket victory. Given the lack of confidence in the West Indies camp, especially from the batsmen, the visitors must now be targeting a whitewash. These continue to be desperate times for the men from the Caribbean.
However, the spells from Ravi Rampaul and Devendra Bishoo in the third match were the first time the series had sparked into life. Before that the West Indian batting had been woeful - with the exception of Lendl Simmons - and Pakistan had barely needed to break sweat in two comfortable run chases. The way they faltered in Barbados, though, offered a glimpse of how they can be exposed for the rest of the tour if the pitches offer pace and bounce. Sadly, for West Indies, after this match the remaining games are in Guyana and St Kitts.
Pakistan's bowling attack, led by the spinners, has managed to contain the West Indies batting. The slow bowlers have been well supported by Junaid Khan and Wahab Riaz - the latter can be expensive but often takes wickets. Meanwhile, the experienced head of Misbah-ul-Haq has provided the fulcrum in the middle order and he has yet to be dismissed in the series. His calmness was vital as nerves frayed in the previous match. West Indies desperately need someone to match him.
