Karachi:Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq won the toss and sent the West Indies into bat in the fifth and final day-night limited-overs international at National Stadium here.

Inzamam returned to the squad after missing the fourth match at Multan due to finger injury. Mohammad Yousuf, Umar Gul and Abdul Rehman also rejoined the team.

Yousuf missed the last match to attend to his pregnant wife, while Gul and Rehman were rested.

Shahid Afridi, Faisal Iqbal, Imran Farhat and Rao Iftikhar were left out.

The tourists made only one change from their line-up which won the fourth match at Multan by seven wickets as paceman Corey Collymore replaced Ian Bradshaw.

Pakistan leads the series 2-1 with first one-dayer cancelled due to rain.
