Pakistan batting first vs West Indies in 3rd ODI

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) " Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat first against the West Indies in their third and last one-day international on Wednesday.

Pakistan seeks a second straight series sweep, after also taking the Twenty20 matchups 3-0.

Sohail Khan was summoned by Pakistan to replace fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who returned home because his mother was ill.

West Indies made two changes, playing opener Evin Lewis in his first ODI for the low-scoring Johnson Charles, and fast bowler Shannon Gabriel. Gabriel missed the second match on Sunday because of a sore neck, and Alzarri Joseph made his ODI debut.

Joseph kept his spot, and Carlos Brathwaite has made for Gabriel.
