Needing victory to keep interest in the series alive ahead of the final match on Sunday, West Indies made one change with batsman and occasional off-spinner Jason Mohammed making his T20 worldwide debut at the expense of all-rounder Rovman Powell. In reply, West Indies opener Elvin Lewis starred with a 51-ball 91, much to the relief of the team management, who were anxious about the poor form of their opening batsmen.
But despite West Indies now facing a second successive series loss in T20s, Law said there was no real added pressure.
That 91 helped West Indies mow down a target of 138 in Port of Spain against Pakistan on Saturday, with seven wickets and over five overs to spare.
Pakistan's 18-year-old legspin sensation Shadab Khan - who finishes his first-ever worldwide series as leading wicket-taker with 10 scalps - again impressed, taking 2-16 from his four overs as the West Indies were restricted to 124-8 batting first. West Indies raced to 37/1 after five overs as Lewis cracked Wasim for a six over midwicket, followed by a straight six. Lewis punished Khan for short bowling, cracking another six in the same over over square leg as the score read 99/2 after 12 overs. There were three collisions, the first leading to opener Evin Lewis running himself out, and the third sending Pakistan's Shehzad to hospital.
With 14 runs needed to win from the last over, Sunil Narine sent Ali's first two poor deliveries to the boundary, and the crowd sensed a comeback. Lewis cracked three sixes and one four in the over.
Lendl Simmons finished the match with a four as West Indies wrapped up a comfortable win.
Veteran Akmal (48) and Azam (43) had the visitors well poised for a total in excess of 160 after Ahmed chose to bat first as they put on 88 runs for the second wicket.
Big-hitting all-rounder Rovman Powell, who made his debut in Barbados, has suffered the ignominy of two first-ball "ducks" but Law said the Jamaican should be given the opportunity to learn from his mistakes. As for Pakistan, Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan were the troublemakers, as they claimed a couple of wickets each to pus the hosts into the backfoot.
"We are still ahead in the series though and I expect a much better effort in the last match".
