Pakistan on Sunday won the toss and elected to bat first against West in third ODI match being  played at Multan Cricket Stadium, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Pakistan has already clinched the series with 2-0 with impressive batting and bowling performances by green shirts. 

Pakistan: 1 Fakhar Zaman, 2 Imam ul Haq, 3 Babar Azam (capt), 4 Mohammad Rizwan (wk), 5 Shadab Khan, 6 Mohammad Haris, 7 Khushdil Shah, 8 Mohammad Nawaz, 9 Hasan Ali, 10 Shahnawaz Dahani, 11 Mohammad Wasim

West Indies: 1 Shai Hope (wk), 2 Kyle Mayers, 3 Shamarh Brooks, 4 Nicholas Pooran (capt), 5 Rovman Powell, 6 Romario Shepherd, 7 Keacy Carty, 8 Akeal Hosein, 9 Jayden Seales, 10 Hayden Walsh, 11 Keemo Paul

Experts said that Babar and Imam continue scoring buckets of runs, and Shaheen continues to take new-ball wickets. But what about the rest? Babar has always been lifting his teammates in pre and post match press conferences. When the team is winning many things go unnoticed. 

This is the time, when many others players also come forward and give their best performances. 

Babar and Imam still score buckets of runs, and Shaheen strikes with such regularity you could set your watch by it. The problems might still be Pakistan's to try and solve, but for the punters who turn out to watch this side these days, Pakistan still deliver exactly what they promise. No less, but perhaps worryingly, no more.

Pakistan won first match with five wickets while green shirts won second match with 120 runs margin. 

PCB has thanked the Multan residents and Pakistani spectators for being a charged crowd at Multan Cricket Stadium.
