West Indies won the toss and decided to bat first in overcast conditions at the Providence Stadium. Jason Holder has won the toss in all three ODIs, but this is the first time he has opted to set a target.

Veerasammy Permaul came in for his first ODI since November 2013, while Alzarri Joseph sat this deciding game out. “We expect it to be a slower surface with a bit of moisture, so we’ve brought Veerasammy in,” Holder said. Shannon Gabriel, who was a doubt with a hamstring injury, was passed fit.

Pakistan went into the series decider unchanged from the team that won the second ODI by 74 runs. “It looks like a damp pitch, and we aim to get them out as early as we can,” Sarfraz Ahmed said. “Our bowlers are in form and I have faith in them to do the job.”

The series is all square going into the final ODI. West Indies won the first match with their highest successful ODI chase before Pakistan levelled things up on Sunday.
