West Indies were 30 without loss off three overs after being put in to bat.Two matches, the first in Barbados six days ago and the third at Providence on Sunday, were abandoned as no-results because of torrential downpours.

Pakistan lead the rain-affected series 1-0, having won the lone completed fixture, also at Providence, by seven runs on Saturday.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the toss and put West Indies in to bat in the final T20 International of the rain-affected four-match series at the National Stadium in Guyana on Tuesday.
