West Indies wins toss, elects to field in 2nd T20

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and opted to field against Pakistan in the second Twenty20 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

West Indies retained the same playing XI despite losing the opening game of the three-match series by nine wickets at the same venue on Friday.

Brathwaite hoped the dampened ball, because of dew, will help his World Twenty20 champion team to chase and negate the spin threat of Imad Wasim, who took 5-14 in West Indies' below-par total of 115 in the first match.

Pakistan didn't disturb its winning combination, which meant fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who was married this week, again had to sit out.

Lineups:

Pakistan: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Babar Azam, Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nawaz, Sohail Tanvir, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz.

West Indies: Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Evin Lewis, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Jerome Taylor, Samuel Badree.
