The four-match T20I series started with a no-result on July 28 (Wednesday), a match that witnessed only nine overs. Then, despite a brilliant 33-ball 62 from Nicholas Pooran, West Indies could manage only 150/4 in reply to Pakistan's 157/8 on Saturday (July 31). It was followed by another wash-out on Sunday (August 1) with only eight balls possible.
Windies entered the series on a confident note after beating Australia 4-1 in a five-match series.
After losing to England 2-1, Pakistan are looking to seal their fourth series win in five.
Pakistan lead the head-to-head record 12-3 in 17 previous fixtures. Two matches ended in no results.
Series-wise, Pakistan have won all but one in five previous engagements. Windies' lone win was a 1-0 in a one-off meeting, which was also their first bilateral T20I meeting in 2011.
Pakistan have since won 2-0 (2 matches), 30 (3-0), 3-1 (4) and 3-0 (3).
