COMMENTARY

That wraps up a match that no one could have predicted. Pakistan might have had the home advantage but West Indies were the favourites with the white ball. The two sides will meet again tomorrow at 2130 IST for the 2nd T20I, giving the tourists a chance to come back hard and even the scores. Do join us then for the action. Until then, goodbye and take care!
Pakistan captain, Sarfraz Ahmed thanks Almighty first and he's happy with his players' performance. Feels body language is important and he tries to motivate the players. Credits all his bowlers as they supported Imad Wasim who always gives the early breakthrough whenever they need it. Adds if you want to compete, irrespective of the opposition then you have to take wickets.
West Indies captain, Carlos Brathwaite feels his side didn't get off to a good start. Says they will analyze this game and check what went wrong individually. Adds defending 115 is very difficult but they fought hard and will come back tomorrow with a better performance.
Man of the Match, Imad Wasim says he just gave his 100 percent. Adds when he was young playing domestic cricket, his attitude was right and he just wanted to play for his country one day.
The heat seemed to get the better of the tourists in the second half but they didn't do much better in the first either. Dwayne Bravo was their saving grace, dragging the team's total over the 100-run line, with Jerome Taylor as his unlikely partner. Key to their collapse was a fearsome Imad Wasim, who picked up a fifer, the first Pakistani spinner to do so in T20Is.
If Pakistan looked completely in their element, the same could not be said of the West Indies. Lackadaisical and lacklustre, their performance on the field left a lot to be desired. No matter what the bowlers threw at the batsmen, they couldn't hold back the runs. Samuel Badree picked up the lone wicket but it was not enough under the pressure of the scoreboard.
Sharjeel Khan got Pakistan off to a flyer but was dismissed before he could really get into his element. Latif stayed on with Azam, who scored his maiden half-century, and the pair racked up a match-winning stand of 88 runs.
Short and sweet is how Pakistan did it. They have wrapped up the game with 9 wickets in hand once more. This time they have done it with 34 balls remaining and are asserting a completely new T20I side. It was Azam and Latif who took the hosts across the line, cruising through the Windies bowlers with ease.

COMMENTARY

End of over

PAK116/1 (14.2 Ovs)

Things look in Pakistan's favour but you never know what the World No. l T20I team can pull out of their hat. Join us shortly for the run chase.
Imad Wasim was the man to make the breakthrough and ensured that the Windies stayed down. He picked up a five-wicket haul, the first ever in T20I history and gave away a paltry 14 runs. The other bowlers did well too, limiting the visitors to a total of 115 with Tanvir picking up two wickets of his own.
With 8 wickets down and 48 runs on the board the situation seemed nigh impossible. However, Bravo and Taylor came in to save face for the Men from the Caribbeans. They put up a 66-run partnership to stablize the innings. Bravo led from the front with a hard-earned 55.
An incredible comeback by the Windies! And it is all thanks to a tremendous innings by Bravo. Pakistan's bowlers came after the batsmen from the word go and West Indies' batters couldn't seem to stay at the crease for long.

TOSS - Pakistan win the toss and elect to bowl first.
Sarfraz Ahmed will captain the Pakistan T20I side for the second time after leading them to victory against England in his first appearance as a captain. On the other hand, skipper Carlos Brathwaite is a national hero for the Caribbean side and will try to turn tides once again to show why they are World Champions. It is going to be an enthralling game as both the sides possess quality batters, bowlers and genuine all-rounders. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.
Hello and a warm welcome to one and all for this exciting contest between Pakistan and West Indies at Dubai (DSC). Both the teams are heading into this 3-match T20I series on a high after their successful T20I outings. UAE is a second home to the Men in Green but the tourists would like to stamp their authority as they are the No. 1 side in T20I cricket.

End of over

PAK116/1 (14.2 Ovs)

That wraps up a match that no one could have predicted. Pakistan might have had the home advantage but West Indies were the favourites with the white ball. The two sides will meet again tomorrow at 2130 IST for the 2nd T20I, giving the tourists a chance to come back hard and even the scores. Do join us then for the action. Until then, goodbye and take care!
Pakistan captain, Sarfraz Ahmed thanks Almighty first and he's happy with his players' performance. Feels body language is important and he tries to motivate the players. Credits all his bowlers as they supported Imad Wasim who always gives the early breakthrough whenever they need it. Adds if you want to compete, irrespective of the opposition then you have to take wickets.
West Indies captain, Carlos Brathwaite feels his side didn't get off to a good start. Says they will analyze this game and check what went wrong individually. Adds defending 115 is very difficult but they fought hard and will come back tomorrow with a better performance.
Man of the Match, Imad Wasim says he just gave his 100 percent. Adds when he was young playing domestic cricket, his attitude was right and he just wanted to play for his country one day.
The heat seemed to get the better of the tourists in the second half but they didn't do much better in the first either. Dwayne Bravo was their saving grace, dragging the team's total over the 100-run line, with Jerome Taylor as his unlikely partner. Key to their collapse was a fearsome Imad Wasim, who picked up a fifer, the first Pakistani spinner to do so in T20Is.
If Pakistan looked completely in their element, the same could not be said of the West Indies. Lackadaisical and lacklustre, their performance on the field left a lot to be desired. No matter what the bowlers threw at the batsmen, they couldn't hold back the runs. Samuel Badree picked up the lone wicket but it was not enough under the pressure of the scoreboard.
Sharjeel Khan got Pakistan off to a flyer but was dismissed before he could really get into his element. Latif stayed on with Azam, who scored his maiden half-century, and the pair racked up a match-winning stand of 88 runs.
Short and sweet is how Pakistan did it. They have wrapped up the game with 9 wickets in hand once more. This time they have done it with 34 balls remaining and are asserting a completely new T20I side. It was Azam and Latif who took the hosts across the line, cruising through the Windies bowlers with ease.
