The third Twenty20 International (T20I) between West Indies and Pakistan at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Sunday was abandoned due to rain.

Pakistan won the second T20I against West Indies to take a one-nil series lead in the four-match T20I series after the first T20I was washed out due to rain.

The fourth and final T20I is scheduled to be played at the same venue on August 3.

Earlier, West Indies' captain Kieron Pollard had won the toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan in the third T20I between West Indies and Pakistan. 

The toss had also been delayed at the start due to rain. 

West Indies had raced to 15 runs off the first eight deliveries of the match as openers Andre Fletcher and Chris Gayle seemed to be in top form before rain interrupted proceedings.
