Ahmed Shehzad’s healthy 67: Pakistan openers were off to a good start, especially Ahmed Shehzad who scored 67 to allow Pakistan his team in the driver’s seat. His innings included six boundaries. He stitched an 85-run stand with fellow opener Kamran Akmal.

 

Mohammad Hafeez’s prolific 88: Apart from Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez added vital runs. He scored a prolific 88, putting his team in a commanding position. Hafeez’s innings included six boundaries and three sixes, along with a strike rate of 96. His 64-run stand with Shehzad, too, helped Pakistan stay on course.

Shoaib Malik’s sturdy 53: With Pakistan innings seeming to be in a threatening position, veteran Shoaib Malik displayed resilience, scoring a much needed 53 that helped Pakistan go past the 300-run mark. He also added 89 runs with Hafeez.

Kieran Powell’s decent knock of 61: For West indies, things started off with a brilliant knock of 61 from Kieran Powell who scored a brilliant half-century, setting a strong platform for the middle order. His innings included five boundaries, along with a strike rate of 71.

Powell-Shai Hope’s gritty 65: Powell was not done yet. He, along with middle-order batsman Shai Hope, added 65 runs, keeping the scoreboard ticking.

Jason Mohammed’s crucial 91*: Middle-order batsman Jason Mohammed played a gem of an innings, as it was his crucial and match-winning knock of 91, which sealed West Indies’ fate in the match. His unbeaten knock, which included 11 boundaries and three sixes, certainly broke the backbone of the Pakistan bowling attack, and his powerful batting stole the show, as West Indies comfortably cruised to a four-wicket win.

Mohammed-Jonathan Carter’s match-winning stand of 70: Jonathan Carter held his nerves, and properly rotated the strike to allow Mohammed. Carter contributed just 14, while Mohammed added 56 in the stand, proving his dominance once again.
