Who Will Win West Indies vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI Today Match Prediction , which can held on Apr 09, 2017, Sunday at Providence Stadium, Guyana and the match begins at 9.30 AM there local time.
West Indies took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
West Indies 309 for 6 (Jason Mohammed 91*, Powell 61, Amir 2-59) beat Pakistan 308 for 5 (Hafeez 88, Shehzad 67, Nurse 4-62) by four wickets and Man of the Match, Jason Mohammed.
History created by the West Indies as this is the first time they have chased a target in excess of 300 in ODIs . A win in the 2nd ODI will give WI their first series win over Pakistan in a bilateral in 10 attempts since 1991.
Pakistan were confident coming into the 50-over format
This is one way to nail a 300-plus chase, a method no cricket manual, traditional or modern, would recommend. West Indies themselves may have not planned to finish it off this way, but they did. Jason Mohammed played the innings of his life as West Indies clawed their way back into a contest they didn’t even seem to be a part of for 35 overs of the chase.

They needed 128 from 13 overs when Jason Mohammed suddenly exploded into life,
treating Pakistan’s vaunted fast-bowling attack with disdain, as Mohammad Amir,
Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali were all on the receiving end of hammerings in the slog overs.
A West Indies win appeared unlikely after Kieron Powell – the only batsman who had attempted to inject
any impetus into the West Indies innings in the first half – and wicketkeeper Shai Hope fell within 10 balls of each other.
Pakistan were confident coming into the 50-over format, following their resounding 3-1 win in the T20Is,
with Shadab Khan hogging all the limelight with back to back Man of the Match awards to boot.
The tourists strung together a confident show in the ODI series opener with both their opening batsmen.
Pakistan will be hurting big time. To be honest, they just wilted under the pressure towards the end. Hafeez and Malik were tidy with the ball but the wickets never really came at regular intervals and that cost the tourists. Amir and Shadab did keep them in the hunt but eventually, Jason Mohammed’s encore proved too much for Pakistan.
