Lahore:Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq won the toss and sent the West Indies into bat in the third One-day international at the Gadaffi Stadium.

The home team showed one change here on Sunday from their two-wicket win in the second match at Faisalabad as vice captain Younis Khan was forced to pull out after his brother died last week.

Younis's place was taken by prolific batsman Mohammad Yousuf, who missed the second One-dayer to be with his pregnant wife in Lahore.

The tourists showed no change as ace batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul failed to recover from a knee injury, forcing him to miss the second match.

The first of the five-match series was washed out due to rain in Rawalpindi.
