Pakistan followed up their 3-nil T2I series win by sealing the ODI series with yet another clinical display against West Indies in Sharjah.

Pakistan's 59-run win was set up by their most and least experienced batsmen - Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam - who combined to display the art of batting through the middle overs on a slow surface to lead them to 337 for 5, the third-highest total in Sharjah.

Azam struck a chanceless century, his second successive one, and Malik blitzed 90 as the pair strung together 169, Pakistan's highest stand for the third wicket against West Indies.

In reply, West Indies found the chase too steep and could only manage 278 for 7.
