Another Azam ton gets Pakistan home

Press AssociationPress Association 2/10/2016

Babar Azam hit a second successive century as Pakistan beat West Indies by 59 runs in the second ODI, taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in their three-match series.

Azam followed his 120 in the first game on Friday with another impressive 123 off 126 balls as Pakistan again batted first and took full advantage of another flat strip at Sharjah to reach 5-337.

Shoaib Malik aided the 21-year-old with a knock of 90 while Sarfraz Ahmed was 60 not out before the West Indies were restricted to 7-278 from their allotted 50 overs.

Darren Bravo (61) and Marlon Samuels (57) were the top-scorers in reply, Wahab Riaz finishing with figures of 2-48 off his 10 overs, with the third and final game in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
