Shadab Khan's brilliant all-round performance has led Pakistan to a 53-run win over West Indies in the third one-day international, wrapping up a 3-0 series sweep.

Shadab's career-best 86 off 78 balls on Sunday revived Pakistan, taking them to 9-269 after the hosts had chosen to bat first and then stumbled against the surprise off-spin of Nicholas Pooran, who took 4-48.

West Indies' struggle against spin then continued as their middle order again capitulated against Shadab (4-62) and Mohammad Nawaz (2-56) and they ended up being skittled for 216 in 37.2 overs.

A dust storm in Multan had suspended play for an hour during Pakistan's innings and the match had to be reduced to 48 overs a side.

Akeal Hosein smashed six sixes and two fours to top-score for West Indies with 60 off 37 balls before he was undone by Shadab's sharp delivery and stumped.

The win lifted Pakistan to fourth on the points table - immediately above West Indies - in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.

The top eight teams will directly qualify for next year's World Cup in India.

The ODI series was postponed last year when West Indies flew back home after a COVID-19 outbreak in the visitors' camp during the preceding T20 series in Pakistan.
