5th ODI: PAK win toss, fielding vs WIS

GROS-ISLET, St. Lucia – Pakistan won the toss and chose to field against West Indies in the fifth One-day International on Wednesday at the Beausejour Cricket Ground here.

Both sides have made a single change.

West Indies brought Tino Best into their line-up, after fellow fast bowler Kemar Roach was sidelined with a stiff back.

Pakistan omitted left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riab, their most expensive bowler in the series, and brought Asad Ali in to replace him.

Pakistan lead the five-match series 2-1, after they won the rain-marred fourth ODI by six wickets under the Duckworth-Lewis Method.

Pakistan won the first ODI by 126 runs two Fridays ago at the Guyana National Stadium, where West Indies won the second ODI by 37 runs two days later before the third ODI ended in a tie last Friday at this venue.
