Pakistan level ODI series with WI

first_imgWest Indies plunged from the lofty heights of Friday’s sensational opening win, producing an underwhelming performance to slump to a 74-run defeat to Pakistan in the second One-Day International yesterday.Set 283 to win and wrap up a series victory over Pakistan for the first time in nearly 30 years, West Indies stumbled when it mattered most and were bundled out for 208 off 44.5 overs at the Guyana National Stadium.Captain Jason Holder top-scored with a career-best 68 while Ashley Nurse got a robust 44, but the Windies batting suffered a spectacular failure, with none of the top six getting past 15.Pacer Hasan Ali was outstanding, claiming five for 38 while off-spinner Mohammad Hafeez picked up two for 23, as the euphoria from the successful record run chase three days ago all but dissipated.The result left the three-match series in the balance at 1-1, with the third and decisive game set for Tuesday.- CMCScoreboardPAKISTANAhmed Shehzad c wkp Hope b Gabriel 5Kamran Akmal c wkp Hope b Joseph 21Babar Azam not out 125Mohammad Hafeez st Hope b Nurse 32Shoaib Malik c wkp Hope b Bishoo 9*+Sarfraz Ahmed c Walton b Gabriel 26Imad Wasim not out 43Extras (b1, lb9, w 9, nb 2) 21TOTAL (5 wkts, 50 overs) 282Did not bat: Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan.Fall of wickets: 1-16, 2-44, 3-113, 4-128, 5-183.Bowling: Gabriel 10-1-50-2 (w2, nb1), Holder 9-0-48-0 (w1), Joseph 9-0-69-1 (w3, nb1), Bishoo 10-0-40-1, Nurse 10-0-42-1 (w3), Carter 2-0-23-0.WEST INDIESE Lewis lbw b Mohammad Amir 13C Walton c Hasan Ali b Junaid Khan 10+S Hope c Shadab Khan b Hasan Ali 15K Powell lbw b Hasan Ali 11Carter lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 12J Mohammed c wkp Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Hafeez 1*J Holder c Babar Azam b Hasan Ali 68A Nurse lbw b Hasan Ali 44D Bishoo lbw b Shadab Khan 16A Joseph c Babar Azam b Hasan Ali 15S Gabriel not out 0Extras (lb1, w2) 3TOTAL (all out; 44.5 overs) 208Fall of wickets: 1-22, 2-27, 3-46, 4-51, 5-56, 6-75, 7-133, 8-156, 9-208, 10-208.Bowling: Mohammad Amir 7-1-36-1, Junaid Khan 6-0-41-1 (w1), Hasan Ali 8.5-1-38-5, Mohammad Hafeez 6-0-23-2, Imad Wasim 7-0-29-0 (w1), Shadab Khan 10-1-40-1.Result: Pakistan won by 74 runs.Series: Three-match series tied 1-1.Man-of-the-Match: Babar Azam.Umpires: G Brathwaite, I Gould; TV – S Fry.last_img
