DUBAI – West Indies suffered their second batting meltdown in the space of 48 hours as they slumped to a 16-run defeat to Pakistan in the second Twenty20 International yesterday to meekly surrender the three-match series.

Asked to chase 161 for victory at the Dubai International Stadium, the Caribbean side looked anything but world champions as they inexplicably collapsed to 144 for nine off their 20 overs to suffer their second straight loss of the series following a similar disappointing outing on Friday.

Sunil Narine saved some face for the Windies with a cameo top score of 30 off 17 deliveries batting at number nine while Andre Fletcher chipped in with 29 but his was a pedestrian knock that required 37 balls, and fell far short of what was required.

West Indies were ripped apart by left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir who snapped up three for 13 in a brilliant four-over spell.  (CMC)
