The West Indies have included fast bowler Shannon Gabriel and wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton while leaving out Carlos and Kraigg Brathwaite for the first two One-day Internationals (ODI) of the three-match rubber against Pakistan, starting on Friday.

The series holds importance for the hosts' chances of an automatic 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup qualification. Pakistan are currently No. 8 in the ICC's ODI rankings, holding the final automatic qualification spot while the West Indies are at 9th, with five ranking points separating the sides.

Pakistan bounced back from a defeat in the third Twenty20 International to complete a seven-wicket win over the West Indies in the fourth game to take the series 3-1.

The series win over the World champions on Sunday lifted Pakistan from No. 6 in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20I team rankings to No. 4, and sent the Caribbean side down to the sixth position. New Zealand tops the charts with 127 ratings points, followed by India (124) and South Africa (117), while England is between Pakistan and the West Indies at No.5.

Evin Lewis' scored a brilliant 91 as West Indies defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the third Twenty20 International (T20I) at Queen's Park Oval. With the West Indies chasing 138, Lewis slammed nine sixes and five boundaries to take the hosts past the target in barely 14.5 overs on Saturday.

Lewis' assault on the bowling was in stark contrast to the struggles of most of the Pakistani batsmen, with the exception of Kamran Akmal and Babar Azam, as Pakistan collapsed from a solid 92 for 2 in 12 overs to a meagre 137 - adding only 45 runs in the last eight overs and losing six more wickets.

West Indies suffered a 186-run defeat against England in the third One-day International in Bridgetown, Barbados on Thursday. This was the Caribbean side's heaviest loss against England in an ODI in terms of runs, while it also marked the first occasion since 1991 that England had swept an ODI series against the West Indies 3-0.

Chasing 329 for victory, the Windies were bowled out for 142 in 39.2 overs, as Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett collected three wickets apiece to undermine their batting on a hard, true Kensington Oval pitch.

Left-hander Jonathan Carter, playing on home soil, led the way with 46 and rookie Alzarri Joseph, batting at 11, made 22 – but no other West Indies batsman reached 20.
