Captain Misbah-ul-Haq led Pakistan to a four-wicket victory over West Indies with yet another calm and composed half century in the fifth and final one-day international to clinch the series 3-1. 

Misbah hit 63 off 93 balls for his fourth half century of the series, and opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad scored a valuable 64 to guide Pakistan to 243-6 after West Indies made 242-7. 

The Pakistan captain featured in two productive partnerships by adding 66 runs with Umar Akmal (33) for the fifth wicket stand after steadying the innings with 59-run partnership with Shehzad. 

West Indies, after being put into bat, was indebted to captain Dwayne Bravo for a rapid 48 with Marlon Samuels (45) and opening batsman Johnson Charles (43) also making useful contributions.
