Rain interrupted play in the second One-Day International between the West Indies and Pakistan at the Guyana National Stadium on Tuesday, with the West Indies 50 for one off 10 overs, batting first.

Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and put the visitors in to bat, hoping for a repeat of Sunday's convincing 126-run victory in the first ODI.

Pakistan predictably named an unchanged XI, with Misbah saying at the toss that he expected his bowlers to exploit the conditions following considerable rainfall on the day between the two fixtures.

West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo revealed that he would have also preferred to bat first and despite the batting capitulation two days earlier when his team were routed for just 98, chose to retain the same team, which includes former captain Darren Sammy who is playing his 100th ODI.
