Pakistan produce record-breaking chase to seal T20I series whitewash over West Indies

History was made at the National Stadium in Karachi as Pakistan recorded their highest T20 International run chase to seal a seven-wicket victory over West Indies and complete a 3-0 series win.

Mohammad Rizwan scored 87 off 45 balls and captain Babar Azam made 79 as the opening pair put on 158 to help the hosts reach their target of 208.

The pair recorded their sixth century together - the most by any batting duo in the history of T20 internationals. Rizwan and Azam overtook India's batting partners Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul who have reached a century together on five separate occasions.

If that wasn't enough, Rizwan also became the first cricketer to bag over 2,000 T20 runs inside a calendar year. Out of his total of 2,036 runs in the short format of the game, 1,326 of them came in internationals.

Pakistan's previous highest run chase was 204 against South Africa at Centurion in April this year.

Rizwan, who hit 10 fours and three sixes, fell to a miscued shot off Dominic Drakes with just 24 runs remaining for victory.

Asif Ali clubbed two sixes and as many fours in his quickfire 21 not out as Pakistan knocked off the total in 18.5 overs.

West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran hit a career-best 37-ball 64, which included six sixes and two fours, as the tourists finished on 207/3.
