PROVIDENCE, Apr 12: Pakistan became the second team with most 50-over format wins after defeating hosts West Indies in third one-day international (ODI) in Guyana.
Pakistan’s ODI team have won 460 matches out of 874 played surpassing India who have won 459 matches out of 907. Australia are placed on the top spot with 554 wins from 898 matches.

Earlier, Shoaib Malik scored an unbeaten century as Pakistan beat West Indies by six wickets to clinch victory in their one day international series in Guyana on Tuesday.

Malik sealed the win and his ton in spectacular fashion, smashing a six off West Indies captain Jason Holder to wrap up victory with nearly seven overs to spare.

Malik’s 101, which included two sixes and ten fours, was matched by an assured 81 from Mohammad Hafeez as Pakistan finished on 236 for four in reply to the home side s 233 for nine.

“I can’t thank Hafeez enough for the way he played because he took all the pressure off me,” said Malik after collecting both the “Man of the Match” and “Man of the Series” awards.

However, Pakistan have managed to directly qualify for World Cup to be held in 2019.
