Pakistan romps to 9-wicket win against West Indies
Babar Azam struck a half century and spinner Imad Wasim grabbed five wickets in Pakistan’s nine-wicket win against the West Indies
Babar Azam struck a half century and spinner Imad Wasim grabbed five wickets in Pakistan’s nine-wicket win against the West Indies in the first Twenty20 international on Friday.
Azam was unbeaten on 55 from 37 balls as Pakistan chased 116-1 in 14.2 overs. Wasim’s 5-14 helped get the T20 world champion out for 115, with only Dwayne Bravo (55) and No. 10 Jerome Taylor (21) reaching double-figures.
West Indies stumbled to 48-8 before Bravo and Taylor combined in a ninth-wicket stand of 66 - a record in T20 internationals.
West Indies spinners Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine were ineffective with the ball dampened by dew as Azam and Khalid Latif (34 not out) shared an unbroken second-wicket stand of 88 to give Pakistan a 1-0 lead in three-match series.
