Pakitan wins toss, elects to bat in 2nd ODI

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) Azhar Ali won the toss and opted to bat against West Indies on Sunday as Pakistan pushed to secure victory in the three-match limited-overs international series.

Pakistan retained the same XI which won the series-opening match by 111 runs on Duckworth/Lewis Method Friday at the same venue, when the West Indies batsmen continued their struggle against spin bowling.

West Indies made one enforced change after fast bowler Shannon Gabriel was ruled out with a sore neck, giving 19-year-old paceman Alzarri Joesph his ODI debut.

Lineups:

Pakistan: Azhar Ali (captain), Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali.

West Indies: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite, Johnson Charles, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard, Carlos Brathwaite, Sunil Narine, Sulieman Benn, Alzarri Joseph.
