Guyana: Jul 14, 2013

West Indies restricted Pakistan to 224 for nine in their 50 overs in the first One-Day International (ODI) match at Guyana on Sunday.

After winning the toss, West Indies skipper Dwayne Bravo put the visitors to bat first. The move worked superbly for the hosts as they lost their first four wickets with only 23 on the board within the first 10 overs.

Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and Umar Akmal stabilised the Pakistan innings with resilient batting. However, it was only after the arrival of the maverick Shahid Afridi at the crease that the Pakistan innings got a momentum. He blasted his way to 55-ball 76, which included five huge sixes.

However, Misbah continued batting at snail’s pace at the other end as he crawled his way to 52 in 121 deliveries.

For West Indies, the tall Jason Holder led the pack picking up four wickets for only 13 runs. Roach, who was hit for a massive six by Afridi, ended up with two wickets giving away 38 runs.

If not for Afridi’s blitz, Pakistan’s innings had little entertainment to offer. Spinners Sunil Narine and Marlon Samuels had to bear the brunt of Afridi’s assault.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 224 for 9 in 50 overs (Shahid Afridi 76, Misbah-ul-Haq 52; Jason Holder 4 for 13) vs West Indies
